The kid store of is going strong with the Thanksgiving Present to loyal customers ahead of the holiday season with Black Friday sales that begins on Thanksgiving Day at 5:00 PM and runs a non-stop marathon sale for 30 hours with doorbusters waiting. Extra staff and volunteers have been brought to support the schedule and get a bang this Black-Friday. The starting time is same as the last year and it closes at 11:00 PM on Friday.
Joe Venezia, VP for Store Operations, said in a statement that surveys and customer feedback is very essential to understand what are the expectations and demands. This helps them prepare better deals each year for the holiday season. It is expected, from the statements in the press release, that the store is set to offer “big savings and expert services” on this holiday season, but there are no leaked ads yet to confirm the promises and claims. It is also interesting to see that there were no comments, at all, from the front line employees who will actually run the store on the Thanksgiving Day, which is supposed to be a national holiday.
The store has released a set of in store maps to find the best deals by sending an SMS “GUIDE” to 78697 or use the in-store QR code, available from November 23rd. This shall be complemented with a single checkout line in order to expedite the transactions and avoid rush through many queues. There shall also be toy experts stationed in all the stores throughout the country, beginning from Thanksgiving Night, to offer any needed advice. It is not customary to work on holidays but the store shall manage if you wish to show up. The actual deals and offers shall be revealed only when the ads are released officially or unofficially, so keep a track of the news if there are plans to present some toys.
