Black Friday Brings Out The Bargain Hunters
DETROIT (WWJ) – It’s Black Friday, a day when throngs of bargain hunters take to malls and shopping centers in the wee hours of the morning to hunt for bargains. What kind of bargains are shoppers looking for?
PriceGrabber.com spokesman Graham Jones breaks down what’s hot in electronics.
“On the higher end market you have the I-Pad, they are very popular, and on the lower price point you’ve got the Kindle Fire,” said Jones.
Jones says that the board game “Angry Birds – Knock On Wood” is the top toy this year and just behind is the Leap Frog learning tablet.
Retail analysts expect shoppers to spend nearly $500 billion during the holiday shopping season, or about 3 percent more than they did last year.
