    AD{CS5824824} AD{CS5839141} 2 THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 Benefits to buying local this holiday season Holiday shopping dominates many people’s free time leading up to the final days before Christmas. While many people may shop ‘til they drop on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, those days still account for a relatively small amount of the hundreds of billions of dollars that are spent each holiday season. Shoppers now have a bevy of options at their disposal as they embark on holiday shopping season. Traditional in-store retailers ONLY NOV. 27 TH , 2015 are still around, and online shopping continues to grow in popularity with each holiday season. But many holiday shoppers are looking to buy local this holiday season, and such a decision can pay a host of dividends for both shoppers and the communities they call home. Buying local benefits your local economy. Studies from Civic Economics, an economics and strategics planning firm, found that independent, locallyowned retailers return a YOUR ONE - STOP TIRE SHOP! Let us find the perfect tire for your vehicle Sales • Service • Installation far greater percentage of their revenue into their local economies than national chain stores. One such study examined the disparity between revenue recirculation among independent, locally-owned businesses in Raleigh, North Carolina, versus four major national chains in the city. The former recirculated 51.1 percent of revenue into the local economy, while the latter recirculated less than 14 percent.

Buying local creates jobs in your community. One of the biggest ways local business owners in Raleigh recirculated their revenue in the local economy was job creation. While national chains also create jobs, such jobs only benefit your community if the chains are located within your community. If your local mall is a considerable drive away, chances are the chains within that mall are not employing many of your fellow community members. Local businesses in your community are more likely to employ residents of your town. Shopping local may provide access to more unique gifts. In addition to the economic benefits of buying local, shoppers may find merchandise made by local craftsmen is more unique than mass-produced items found on the shelves of national retailers. Recipients may cherish more unique items that they cannot find on their own, and that appreciation may even spur them to visit more local retailers after the holiday season has come and gone, benefiting their own communities in so doing. Local business may provide a more personal touch. Buying from national chains has its advantages, but customer service is not always one of them. Should your loved ones encounter problems with their gift that requires assistance, they might be forced to wait on the phone for extended periods of time as they and thousands of others wait for customer service representatives to answer their calls. Local businesses do not deal with nearly the volume of customers as national retailers and, therefore, are capable of addressing concerns more quickly and personally than large chains. Buying local not only benefits small business owners, but it also pays dividends for their customers and the communities they call home. www.murraydunnnipawin.com 306-862-4621

    AD{CS5824906} WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 • THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY 3 Make the most of Black Friday shopping Black Friday is one the biggest shopping days of the year, and is often the perfect time to begin holiday shopping and save money on incredible deals. Thousands of eager shoppers will leave their homes in the early morning hours and wait in lines at stores in order to grab the best prices of the season, while retailers will be gearing up to lure the greatest number of shoppers. Surviving the day unscathed and arriving home with discounts galore involves having a game plan for success. Use these pointers to help navigate your Black Friday: Know the prices of the items you want to buy. Scour advertisements in advance of Black Friday to gauge the regular retail prices for common items, including electronics. Comparison shop for the best prices and make notes to help you when Black Friday arrives. Understand the fine print of “door busters.” Door buster sales are meant to get shoppers into stores, where retailers hope shoppers will make additional purchases while taking advantage of advertised deals. If door buster items are all you’re looking for, read the advertisements carefully, noting the start and end time of the discounts and if there will be limited quantities. In addition, determine if there is a special return policy for sale items purchased on Black Friday. Dress for comfort. Wear sensible, comfortable shoes and clothing when shopping. Leave a large purse at home and opt for something compact that can be draped securely over your shoulder and body to navigate the crowds. Keep your coat in the car or make use of a coat check service if available. Dress in layers if you will be waiting outside for stores to open. This way you can shed clothing as the mercury rises or when you get inside. Arrive together but shop separately. The “divide and conquer” method of shopping allows everyone in your shopping party to score good deals. Split up shopping tasks and then head to different areas of the store. Share and collect your purchases when you meet up after the rush. Make a list and stick to it. Buyers’ remorse come Saturday morning is common for those who have overextended their budgets and purchased items they did not need. Know ahead of time what you plan to purchase and do not veer off course. Scout the stores ahead of time. Visit the stores where you plan to shop a few days before Black Friday. Learn the layout of the store and where everything is located. Try on certain clothes or read over the labels of big-ticket items you plan to buy. Knowing where items are located and having all of your information in advance will cut down on the time it takes to find items on Black Friday. Don’t overlook nontraditional stores. Many other stores, from pharmacies to supermarkets, stock items apart from food and toiletries. Consider taking advantage of their sales for some Black Friday deals. Park off campus. Mall parking lots can get just as crowded as the stores themselves. Save yourself time and the stress of finding a spot by parking near the store but away from the crowd. Clean out your car prior to shopping. Make room in the trunk or cargo area for all of your purchases. For those who will be buying large, heavy items, find out if the store will ship the merchandise or will hold it aside until you can take it home. Understand that some stores will not hold items and enlist a friend or spouse to help you pack purchases into the car. Promptly store receipts. Designate a folder or envelope for all of your receipts to keep them organized and handy. Pack a small snack and drink. It’s easy to become dehydrated and hungry waiting in long lines, which can compromise your decisionmaking abilities. Bring a snack so that you can recharge your body and continue shopping. Leave the kids at home. Black Friday shopping can be stressful, and children can easily get lost or bumped around in the fray. It is safer to leave them home so you can focus your full attention on shopping. Know when to call it quits. Establish a firm cut-off time for ending your shopping excursion. This way you can head home, rest and sort through your purchases. Black Friday November 27th Open 9am - 8pm NO TAX Men’s Bear Sorel Boots $79.99 Prices as Marked PLUS NO TAXES!

    AD{CS5824889} 4 THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 Stay hydrated and hot while shopping Shopping can be a really physical activity. Going from store to store, up and down aisles looking for that perfect present. While thinking about, and shopping for, others it is important to take some time for yourself and healthily prepare for what you are heading into. Dress for the weather. Layered clothing works better to keep you warm and your skin dry so you don’t get chilled. You may want to invest in clothing designed specifically for winter outdoor activity, or layer garments made of natural fibres (like cotton, wool and silk). Know when to rest. Rest when you feel tired. Stop your activity immediately if you experience sudden or prolonged pain in any joint or muscle. Stay hydrated. Don’t be fooled by the temperature. Your active body needs plenty of fluids even though it’s cold outside. Be sure to drink lots of water or juice before, during and after winter activities. Follow these tips, and you’ll be well on your way to having a safe and healthy winter. In the end it is winter and it is important to stay warm. One of the best, family friendly ways to do that is with hot chocolate. The terms “hot chocolate” and “hot cocoa” are used interchangeably, but they actually refer to two different beverages. Hot chocolate is made from shaved solid chocolate, which contains both cocoa and cocoa butter. Hot cocoa is made from cocoa powder, which alone does not constitute full chocolate. Either drink can be delicious, and many people prefer one over the other. While traditional hot chocolate is a favorite for many, there are ways to make this beloved beverage more unique. By experimenting with flavor combinations, hot chocolate can become new again each day. The following are some flavorful ingredients you may want to try to spice up your next cup of hot chocolate. -Caramel: Pair a rich, dark or semi-sweet hot chocolate with a swirl of caramel. The caramel will add sweetness and extra creaminess to the blend. -Peppermint: Peppermint and hot chocolate can make for an interesting contrast. The cooling nature of peppermint works nicely with the heat of hot chocolate, imparting a wonderful aroma as well. Melt a candy cane or mint from a restaurant in the mug and enjoy. -Nutmeg: What nutmeg does for eggnog it also can do for hot chocolate. Nutmeg offers that earthy bite that calls to mind long days baking in the kitchen. -Chile powder: Chile can add a little kick to hot chocolate that works surprisingly well. Add just enough to offer a little tingle of residual heat at the back of your throat. This concoction also may help clear up a case of congestion or the sniffles. -Coffee: Add a splash of coffee to the hot chocolate for an instant boost of caffeine and some mocha flavoring. -Whipped cream: Create the flavor combination of a chocolate cream pie with a generous dollop of whipped cream. For a truly rich flavor, make a batch of fresh whipped cream, which will also thicken the hot chocolate. -Coconut milk: Invoke the tropics by substituting coconut milk for regular milk. You may feel like you’re on your own private island. -Peanut butter: Few people can resist the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Melt a spoonful of peanut butter into the beverage and enjoy. -Marshmallows: Of course one of the simplest ways to dress up hot chocolate is to fill the mug to the brim with sweet marshmallows. Put a different spin on hot chocolate with various add-ins. The combinations and possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

    AD{CS5835940} 6 THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 Things to think about before buying Few holiday shoppers can resist a great deal. Whether it’s heavily discounted merchandise on Black Friday or last-minute sales for shoppers who procrastinate, there are deals to be had from the start of the holiday season until its unofficial end sometime around New Year’s Day. But not all deals are what they seem. Many a shopper has swiped their card on a gift for a loved one only to find out later they overspent or didn’t read the fine print and subjected themselves or their friends and family members to potentially costly fees. The following are a handful of things shoppers should consider before making any purchases this holiday season. Restocking fees As thoughtful as holiday gifts may be, many are ultimately returned. Recipients may already have similar items at home or find a particular gift does not suit their personal styles. Because returns are so common, shoppers should read the fine print before buying gifts to ensure their purchases are not subject to restocking fees if they must be returned. Restocking fees can apply to any product, but they are most often applied to electronics. A restocking fee is a charge the person returning the gift must repay upon bringing the gift back to the store or mailing it back to the warehouse. Restocking fees often apply to items that are not returned in their original factory-sealed box, and these fees can be exorbitant, sometimes as much as 20 percent of the cost of the product. So before buying that big-ticket television or appliance, holiday shoppers should ensure the item’s recipient will not be subject to a considerable fee if he or she decides to return the gift. Extended warranties Many items come with manufacturer warranties that cover damaged items for a predetermined period of time. But many shoppers want to go the extra mile and buy extended warranties that protect the products for longer periods of time. While that’s good in theory, studies from Consumer Reports have shown that products rarely break within the time period covered by extended warranties, meaning shoppers are simply buying a false sense of security they’re unlikely to ever use. When considering an extended warranty, first research the product you want to buy by reading customer reviews of the product on popular sites such as Amazon.com. Such sites can offer valuable insight with regard to how reliable products are. If multiple reviewers note that a given product has never given them a reason to reconsider their purchase, then you likely don’t need an extended warranty. If you still want the extra protection, read the fine print of the extended warranty so you know just what it does and does not cover. Return policies Because so many gifts are returned once the holidays have come and gone, it’s important to understand a retailer’s return policy before buying a gift for a friend or family member. In-store purchases may be subject to different return policies than items bought online, which may need to be returned via the mail, a potentially costly expense for the gift’s recipient depending on the size of the gift. Try to shop only at stores with flexible, consumer-friendly return policies so your friend or family member does not have to jump through hoops just to return the gift. Resisting a holiday deal can be difficult. But shoppers should first read the fine print before making any purchases so they can rest easy knowing they made the best decision possible.

    AD{CS5829025} WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 • THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY 7 Maximize time spent holiday shopping The holiday season encompasses several weeks of frenetic activity, as men and women look to juggle abnormally busy social schedules with holiday shopping. While you might not be able to add hours to the day, there are certain measures anyone can take to make the hustle and bustle of the holiday season more efficient. Shopping swallows up a significant amount of time come the holiday season. According to the latest Consumer Reports Holiday Shopping Poll, the average person will spend 15 hours shopping for presents. Women tend to spend twice as long as men in stores and online, with women logging 20 hours of holiday shopping compared to the 10 hours the average male spends shopping for holiday gifts. Making the most of holiday shopping trips can free up moments and reduce overall stress during the holidays. Condense your gift list How much time you spend on holiday shopping depends largely on the number of people on your gift list. Shortening that list can save time and money. This may be the year for adults to collectively decide to forego exchanging gifts in lieu of devoting more funds toward gifts for youngsters. Distant friends may no longer need to feel obligated to buy presents for one another. Opting to do a “Secret Santa” or another grab-bag style gift exchange can reduce the number of gifts you need to buy, saving time along the way. Keep a spreadsheet of your shopping list stored on your computer or smartphone so it can be easily modified year-to-year. Create a shopping strategy Millions of shoppers flock to stores on Black Friday to take advantage of doorbuster deals, and some even get all of their holiday shopping finished on this one afternoon. Others prefer to divide and conquer over a few weeks. Decide how you would like to economize your shopping so you won’t be traveling from store to store wasting precious time. Organize your shopping list into certain categories. Then match up those categories according to the stores that cater to these items. For example, if your list mentions bedding for a new college student’s dorm room, curtains for an aunt and a set of beach towels for a friend who will be doing some postholiday travel, group these purchases together and head to a bed-and-bath store. Such a plan in place can greatly cut down on your time spent shopping. Shop off-hours Consumer Reports says shoppers expect to wait in store check-out lines for an average of 3.5 to 4 hours this holiday season. Avoiding such situations can save you a significant amount of time, so shop during off-peak hours when you won’t be elbow-to-elbow with fellow shoppers. Take advantage of stores’ extended hours and shop later in the evening, when parents and their children will likely be preparing for bed and not waiting in line at the mall. Some retailers entice shoppers with early bird specials and open their doors very early, so shoppers looking to save time can make an effort to be the first person at the door when the store opens. If you must shop during a lunch hour, shop online where crowds are never a concern. Split up the shopping Spouses, family members and even friends can pool their shopping time and help others by tackling some of their purchases. Dividing the work shortens the time spent in stores, and a third party may have a keen eye to a deal or a unique gift when he or she is emotionally removed from the purchase. The average person finds time is of the essence come the holiday season. Prioritizing and economizing shopping is one way to make the season less hectic. Did You Know? Black Friday deals are a top draw for shoppers looking to save money and get a jumpstart on holiday shopping. In a survey from the International Council of Shopping Centers, more than 34 percent of respondents indicated they plan to shop on Black Friday. However, many others are just as eager to begin shopping even earlier. In recent years, some stores have begun to open their doors to shoppers the day before in the evening. BLACK FRIDAY SALE!

    AD{CS5834174} 8 THE NIPAWIN JOURNAL BLACK FRIDAY • WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2015 Getting ready to hit the stores Are you ready for Black Friday? Be sure to map out your game plan before you hit the stores to get started on – or even finish – your holiday shopping: • Do your homework first by checking flyers and online ads, and check local newspapers. • Make sure you compare prices, too: not all Black Friday advertised items are great deals. Check around to make sure it’s a bonafide bargain. • Save even more by using store coupons and buying items that have a cash-back rebate. • Set your alarm clock: many participating retailers will offer Black Friday deals either late the night before, or very early in the morning. Plan to arrive even earlier if you hope to snag one of the hottest items. • Check the store’s return policy: if you can’t return an item that you don’t want, it’s not a deal at all. For many years, it was strictly a south-of-theborder holiday shopping tradition that followed turkey and stuffing on American Thanksgiving. But in recent years, the Black Friday blitz has migrated north to Canada. With more and more Canadian retailers taking part, there will be plenty of stores welcoming shoppers with open arms and huge deals on Friday, November 27. While Boxing Day remains the Canadian standard for blowout pricing, Black Friday is taking hold here as the best way to get a jump on holiday shopping, especially at major retail outlets. As a result, Canadians are less likely to cross the border to take advantage of American Black Friday prices if they can find items on their holiday shopping lists at bargain prices right in their own backyard. Many retailers were early adopters of America’s most celebrated sales day and offer Black Friday deals on what will be the number one item on many shopping and wish lists this Black Friday: electronics in the form of laptops, tablets, televisions and more. Toys are another topfive item on Black Friday shopping lists, and some places have been quick on the uptake when it comes to offering Canadian shoppers special prices on the must-have gifts in Santa’s sleigh this year. Wrapping it up early means peace of mind under the tree on the big day, and if you can save money doing it, it will be worth getting up early in the morning to be there when doors open.
