There were reports several months ago that Amazon had first delayed the sale until August, however conditions have required Amazon to postpone the sale again. The new date places the sale during the first week of the important 4th quarter for the nation’s leading online retailer.We’re expecting an all-out blitz of sales during the entire 4th quarter as retailers try to make up some of the losses sustained over the spring and summer. We’re expecting a big increase in the number of pre-Black Friday sales as well as better quality of deals before and after Black Friday.
