Post-holiday shopping can be more fun than shopping during the Christmas holiday.
And why is that so? Fatter and more attractive discounts.
Just after the holiday season, in the period after Christmas till January, discounts on clothing, home décor, and fancy items tend to get amazingly attractive.
The Shoppes At Lafayette hosted a Holiday Shopping Extravaganza on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and a Super Sunday from November 26 – 28. The special shopping hours on Black Friday marks incredible discounts for a few stores, with numerous craft vendors selling their creative goodies.
As the holiday season ends, people in Lafayette are complete with their shopping and many do not shop for a long time. However, the market price of many items that were procured for the holiday season, gets slashed. Vendors are selling hot items, designer apparel, and signature line of bags and accessories at throwaway prices(well, considering their original pricing) post-holiday season.
A National Retail Federation survey of nearly 8,000 adults conducted from Nov. 26 through Dec. 4 found that 68% of holiday shopping enthusiasts are likely to shop the week after Christmas.
Shopping for the big brands
Just a word of caution. Though you might get all excited to see your favorite Michael Kors bags and Victoria’s Secret stuff at hefty discounts, do compare ‘after and before’ prices.
Discounts on sweaters and other winter clothing are at an all-time high post-holiday season. You can check out the numerous sites that offer deals, discounts, and coupon codes for various products. Who knows, you might just be lucky to grab the high-end jacket that you had been eyeing for a long time!
Shopping in Lafayette
At Lafayette, you can find some steal deals at the Mill or other good discounts on vintage products available at the plethora of antique shops in the township. These antique shops house the finest collection of decorative, silverware, cutlery, accessories, bags, and toys that are unique and have a memoir value. Those interesting finds at the Sophie’s G Attic, Bogwater Jim’s, or the woolens at Sheep Thrills, you may grab a great bargain!
For electronics, you can wait till early January. And if you are looking to buy a new gadget like a TV, you can wait further till after the Super Bowl in February. It’s also a great idea to indulge in some exercise equipment at that time of the year.
The bottom line is simple. Do not make hasty purchases that you end up regretting later. They will leave your credit cards exhausted and you will have a home full of non-utility stuff. It is difficult to resist yourself during the hustle-bustle of Christmas when everyone is buying something new for themselves.
As a part of their smart shopping strategy, 50% of people take advantage of post-holiday sales and promotions, and 27% plan to use gift cards. And more than half of shoppers say they will return or exchange any unwanted gifts or holiday items within the first month after receiving them. So much so to make the most of the post-holiday shopping season!
