So Gray Thursday and Black Friday remain successful, so expect more of the same next year. The American retailer and consumer are alive and well!!!
If you’ve been a follower of this blog, then you know what I feel about this time of the year—specifically Black Friday. As a retailer myself, I wish I could feel different, but I don’t. I can’t stand the consumerism that surrounds us. To buy for the sake of buying…well, I did just that when I was in my twenties, had no money and didn’t know better.
As a more mature adult, I have the money and now stay far, far away from the hype that is Christmas shopping. I’d add another far…but I do buy presents for friends and family. Friends understand that some years there’s just no money for gifts under the Christmas tree. Family…well, not so much so. I always buy for them. Some years more, some years less.
This year I am visiting my sister who has moved to upstate New York, where we both grew up as children. We left this area when I was 11 and she was 8 to the more sunny climes of Florida. This year I’m flying to visit my sister, who for the last thirty years has lived in the Chicago area. So it was easy to visit family for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Now, not so much so. It’s going to cost me even more. This is probably another reason I’m not into holiday gift spending, this year.
However, I am looking forward to being with family this year in snowy upstate New York. And I used Cyber Monday to shop for gifts – because I shop online now.
Which leads me to the reason for this blog – I didn’t want to bombard you with more sales announcements on Cyber Monday. But we are having a holiday sale – I’ve got 10% off all merchandise including services – now is the time to book those 30 minute and 60 minute readings! Call to book your appointment today and receive the discounted price — $6 off ½ hour and $12 off an hour reading. Hey, every bit helps right? If you book now –even if it’s for the new year – you’ll get the discount. We stop the promotion on December 21st.
There’s also Free Shipping on all tangible products; we do not guarantee Christmas delivery after Dec. 18th. We also have Gift Certificates this year!
So, enjoy this shopping season and check us out if you’d so inclined. Book those appointments and get the discounted price! And as always, we hope you have a very happy holiday season!
Don’t forget to Follow the Light!
