Today is Cyber Monday

-- — Following on the heels of Black Friday and Small Business Saturday is Cyber Monday, traditionally the first Monday after Thanksgiving.

Retailers have been enjoying one of their best shopping seasons in years this year, breaking sales records. To keep that frenzy going, especially with so many must-have items already out of stock in many stores, Cyber Monday is the time to order those electronics and computers at deep discounts.

Most retailers started their sales online early this year, like everything else, but some held out until midnight last night to start their discounts.

The hottest items this year are TV’s, tablets, game consoles, and electronic accessories. Other items are hot simply because they are being discounted so deeply this year, creating more of a demand for them.

For those whose shopping is not yet finished or those looking for that hard to find game console or tablet, today is the day to go online to find those last few items. With just a few weeks left before Christmas, you need to order soon in order to get your items in time to get them under the tree Christmas morning.

In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies.
