Comments Avoiding the Holiday Shopping Season This Year?

  • My friends/family have odd taste, so I do most of my holiday shopping online. I might pick up something in person if I'm out. I never do Black Friday though. I'd rather not risk dying trying to get 30% off a game, I'll just pay full price to not get stampeded.XD

    Honestly, I prefer online shopping now but I never participated in Black Friday (unless they had a really good deal on something I wanted). Still, I do still enjoy shopping in person just not near the holidays.

    Have never done holiday shopping in-person. Right now I'm hitting Y!J auctions and Mercari Jp for some stuff. Maybe will take advantage of Right Stuf's fantastic Black Friday sale.

    My girlfriends retail job just announced they're never going to be open for Thanksgiving again which is pretty cool. I worked my early 20s in retail and convenience stores for Thanksgiving it was hell. I'm in a great position now where I don't have to so I'm thankful for that and usually save black Friday deals for the weekend. I'm actually going to the mall but mainly because they have an independent artist/vendor craft expo this weekend. Over 100+ small businesses and artists and then going to my local D&D store for gifts. I'm tending to actually get gifts pre-owned and from small businesses this year and I enjoy it more!

    YES, completely avoiding it for the first time...ever? Yeah, ever lol. It is a forced situation, but still not having the extra stress from it is nice in a way.

    One positive thing to come out of this pandemic might be the scaling back of Thanksgiving day in-store shopping. Being armtwisted into working on Thanksgiving day must have made the shitty and demoralizing environment of retail work just that much worse.

    Same comment for Black Friday. I cannot fathom working retail and having to deal with a horde of morons who are foaming at the mouth and ready to engage in fisticuffs to buy some off-brand TV for $25 cheaper than they could get its proper name brand counterpart any other day of the year.

    I did most of my holiday shopping earlier this week from the comfort of my living room, and for the one item I didn't want to buy online, there was Best Buy curbside pickup. I placed the order over breakfast, got the "your order is ready" email 10 minutes after the store opened, drove there, checked in, and 5 minutes later the item was in my car and I was driving home.

    Once I get my money by the end of the month, I will try to obtain 4-5 items and ship both boxes (one from prxy and the other by AmiAmi) by EMS asap.

    Then I should be good for overseas orders for the rest of the year.
    Final orders will happen from German anime stores in 2022.
