Economic indicator or just the way retail works? I mean, Dick’s Sporting Goods only sells so many items: of course they’re going to offer a North Face jacket on Super Retail Day every year. The matchups even extend to changeable markets like electronics, though. Check out their chart, which sorts out deals from national and regional big-box retailers. Petsmart is offering the same medium-sized pet carrier or crate ($34.99) as last year. Staples and OfficeMax are both in reruns, putting the same exact Brother printers they had on sale last year at the same price.
