Toys R Us Files for Bankruptcy, Plans to Close Some Stores
Posted on September 19th @ 8:50 am ET  -   Comments

Toys R Us filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today and announced plans to remake its image should a judge approve their plans to cut debts and reemerge from bankruptcy.

Toys R Us announced that they plan to close underperforming stores (no list was given) and transform others into "interactive spaces" with rooms that can be used for parties, product demos and other events. The company also says they will raise wages over the next 3 years.

While this news shouldn't affect their Black Friday plans for this year, it could very well be the beginning of the end for the longtime toy retailer. We'll have more coverage of Toys R Us' holiday plans in the coming weeks and months as the bankruptcy process becomes more clear.

Posted on September 5th @ 11:48 am ET  -   Comments

We know many of you wait with anticipation for every leaked ad to be posted each year. We've compiled a chart which shows the dates we've posted ads during the past 11 years. Taking a look at the chart, you'll notice that aside from a few early small ads, the more anticipated ads typically start getting posted in late October.  

Of course, that all could change this year, so be sure you're signed up for our free alert mailing list in case an ad gets leaked sooner than expected. And as always, we rely on our loyal visitors to provide us with early peeks of the ads. Just click here to submit info.

In-Store Black Friday Sales Flat, But Online Sales Skyrocket
Posted on November 29th @ 10:20 am ET  -   Comments

Black Friday is over and the numbers are in. ShopperTrak reports that in-store Black Friday visits were flat compared to last year, and combined Thanksgiving and Black Friday numbers were down one percent over 2015 numbers. This was attributed to a few less stores opening on Thanksgiving and more shoppers doing their shopping online.

Black Friday saw $3.34 billion spent online, and Cyber Monday was on track to eclipse that mark, which is a 9.4 percent increase over last year. Online shopping is our specialty and you can be sure we'll be covering it even more next year and beyond as it becomes the way to shop on Black Friday.

Now that Black Friday week is over, you may be thinking that the deals are over as well. But as we've mentioned many times, GottaDEAL is open all year and we definitely don't stop bringing you the deals.

We post hundreds of deals each week on the home page, and we have thousands of coupons and discounts for your favorite retailers. Sign up for our Instant Deal Alerts to get e-mails when we find Black Friday-level deals during the year.

Keep following us on Twitter and make sure you've liked our Facebook page to keep in touch during the rest of the year. You can also sign up for our Black Friday mailing list and we'll send you an e-mail when we get going again.

In closing, thank you for making our 13th year covering Black Friday here on GottaDEAL another big success. Black Friday is covered everywhere these days, but as the largest independent Black Friday site, we hope we've provided something that the other sites just can't match.

We hope you found the site useful and we also hope you'll stick around all year long. We'll be posting any relevant news updates and rumors over the next 9 months or so, and we'll see everyone again in September 2017 as we resume our Black Friday coverage for the 14th consecutive year.
