In keeping with tradition for the past several years, Apple has announced today that they’ll be holding their traditional Black Friday shopping event yet again.
The day after Thanksgiving has been christened “Black Friday” in the U.S., cited as one of the busiest shopping days of the year and one that retailers count on to get their bottom line out of the red. While Apple certainly doesn’t have to worry about that based on their most recent quarterly results, they’ll be joining in the fun at the Apple Online Store.
A teaser posted this morning on Apple’s website announces “the special one-day Apple shopping event” coming this Friday, November 27. “Come back to the Apple Online Store the day after Thanksgiving for a special one-day-only holiday shopping event,” the announcement proclaims. “You’ll find dozens of great iPod, iPhone, and Mac gift ideas — all with free shipping.”
Rumors were swirling last week that Apple would offer the steepest discounts yet on iPods and Macs this year, although in previous years the discounts have been modest at best.
But it beats getting up in the middle of the night to chase down deals at your local retailers, right?
