The websites for the Bon-Ton family of stores re-launched this week under new ownership. CSC Generation Holdings, which owns other e-commerce sites such as DirectBuy, won the auction for the rights to Bon-Ton's trademarks, domain names and customer lists.
For now, it appears that the products sold on these sites are items that are drop-shipped directly from either the manufacturer or a distributor. The new Bon-Ton does not have any warehouses with product and they do not carry any of the old Bon-Ton exclusive merchandise lines.
While the new owners expressed their intentions to open physical stores, we would be surprised if this goes beyond an online-only endeavor that, other than using the names and logos, has virtually nothing to do with the original company which operated for 100 years.

Amazon will sell a selection of living Christmas trees and wreaths this year, some of which will be eligible for free Prime shipping (get a free trial of Amazon Prime here). We expect to see some of these trees appear in Amazon's Black Friday sale, possibly as limited quantity Lightning deals.
The collection of trees will include Fraser Fir, Balsam Fir, Black Hills Spruce and Norfolk Island Pines. Sizes will range from 2 to 7 feet tall. A 7-foot Fraser Fir will cost $115. Pricing for all varieties will be announced at a later time and orders will be taken starting in November.

One of the items you can be sure to see in Black Friday ads each year are the special video game console bundles that the manufacturers put together each fall to boost sales during the holiday shopping season. Nintendo has just announced their bundle for this year.
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bundle for Nintendo Switch will come with a special edition dock, Smash Bros. Joy-Con controllers as well as a download code for the game which comes out in December. Best Buy is already taking preorders, however if you can wait, there's likely to be discounts of around $50-60 in the Black Friday ads and during online sales this year.

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 12 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.

We realize that we get many visits from employees of the retailers that we post Black Friday ads from. Given that potential audience of decision-makers within the retail industry, we thought we'd try to help out all of retailers during this holiday shopping season.
Several years ago we compiled a list of best practices that stores can follow for a successful day - Black Friday 101 for retailers. We think these ideas still are valid and should be considered.
