Anyone Else Have Black Friday Anxiety?

This should be a verifiable disease; "Black Friday Anxiety." I'm pretty sure I have it. How about you?

Many of the Black Friday ads are out and shoppers are planning their attack. As we learned last week, Black Friday is now Black Thursday with several stores opening at 8 or 9pm on Thanksgiving night. Did you know that sale-shoppers and bargain-hunters will actually end up spending more money in the long run than those who skip the sales and pay full price? There's a tidbit to add to the stress.

Holiday Market Starts Thursday in Tyler

Stats say that at this point in November, about half of us have already begun our holiday shopping. Somewhere in the house we have a box of gifts already stashed away, and many of us started picking up the gifts even before Halloween to stay ahead of the game. Call us crazy, but we consider ourselves geniuses cuz we're not hit with the Christmas bills all at once. It's just effective planning!

There's a great opportunity beginning today in Tyler to do a little holiday shopping at the Holiday Market. It is the largest fundraiser for Junior League of Tyler, the community-service organization of women. You'll be able to find lots of great gifts to stash away, and some things for yourself too.

Holiday Shopping Season is Officially Here

I think I saw the first big, full-blown display of Christmas trees and snow globes and dancing elves in a store around September 15th. That's pure madness! But after I stopped fighting it in my head, I let my excited 4-year old drag me into that section of the store and we both picked up a snow globe and shook it

Longtime Tyler Store is Closing

Joyner-Fry, originally on the downtown square in Tyler but now in the Bergfeld Center, has been in business for 75 years, it's the oldest family-owned business in the city. Now the store is down to the last few weeks of selling men's shirts and ties.

The men's clothing store got its start in the early 1930s in downtown Tyler, and now Steve Fry is retiring and plans to close in late December. The doors could close sooner if the shelves and racks become bare before the end of the year.

Shopping Season is Here

On a shopping trip this weekend I saw what may be the first one of the year. A Christmas tree! On September 15th.

At this particular store, the Christmas tree was fully decorated, and the snow globes, stockings, and Christmas cards were already for sale. Right there next to the Halloween decorations.

Kidd Kraddick has asked the question before, and I'll ask it again. How early is too early?

Why Do We Gravitate Toward Middle Items When We Shop?

It happens 12 times a year in Canton, and this weekend marks the fourth time this year that First Monday Trade Days is happening.
