We Want Your Money
Black Friday has also taken a grip on Denmark. The american tradition came to Denmark around five years agoand has since then become bigger and bigger. People are going crazy and I just prefer to stay at home. I read on the news that in Britain the mallsand high streets were left empty as people took to internet shopping instead. Very bad for the shops, but that trend is changing within the next years. Let´s just hope thare any shops left when people find out that real shopping is more fun than sitting alone online.
However, there are some Danish companies that simply will not participate in what they call a big party of overconsumption. As you know, we are (read I am) right now cleaning our all the clutter and stuff we don´t use.
Right now we need a new pc. We went to different stores yesterday, but none of the staff knew what was on sale today. This morning we made a search on different online stores, but there were no big savings. Not more than you get every week, the usual 10-20% and you know the “normal” prices are higher than last week. Now I´ve decided to wait until the new models hit the stores and then there will be big reductions.
In the mall we also went to the sports shop – they had 30+% off on everything all week. Since we have a sport shop of the same chain in our town, we drove home bought the clothes there and event got an extra special discount of some gifts. So we shopped locally and even saved more than we would have shopping in the mall.
The two biggest boys have been to Black Friday two years ago. the bought nothing and think it´s all a big scam. So now we´re all cured and save up for what we really want and buy it when it´s on sale.
I wish you all a nice evening, I´m going for Danish Smørrebrød with beer and snaps at my next door neighbour in an hour. Yummy!
