Today is October 11, 2010, which means that it is Columbus Day. If we were to go back a decade or two this day was very important to many American’s — now this is not the case. The amount of businesses allowing staff to take the day off work is getting less, such as those at Best Buy.
However, what is not good for these workers is certainly good for the consumer, as you can get the chance to grab yourself a bargain. A number of Best Buy stores in the U.S. are holding a special Columbus Day Clearance event, which begins at 9AM in whichever area you live in.
Looking online there are deals to be had on a Plasma HDTV and Blu-ray home cinema system, which has $430 off the normal price. There are also a range of Dell computers; prices start at just $349.99.
These are just a few offers that I can see on the Best Buy website. However, if you are not in the market for any products from the retail giant, then there are a number sales and offers going on in other stores; more details here.
Do you think that Columbus Day is important anymore?
