Where do you “holiday” shop?

11/28/2008 Bump:

Below is a post from last Christmas – asking where Hoboken residents did their gift shopping.

The reason I bring this up – I’m wondering because of the recent “economic meltdown,” has your gift-giving gameplan changed? Do you plan on spending less, the same, or more than previous years?

Local or Online?

I had a conversation with a local merchant a few days ago, and she (naturally) stressed the “importance” of supporting local businesses (instead of buying impersonal items from larger stores or online.)

I also prefer seeing local businesses thrive, rather than chain stores coming in and ruining the character of our city. But in the end it comes down to supporting “#1” first – so how do you support local merchants AND get the best value for your money?

With about 10 days left till Christmas, it’d be interesting to know where most people do their “Holiday” shopping these days.

I’m lucky, I give “the gift that keeps on giving” with Hoboken411 all year round, so I’m getting off scot free this year! However, where is everyone else shopping, if at all? Since I’m an internet addict, I generally buy most of my goods online. Just the way I roll.

Not everything at Big Fun is more expensive than you might find it elsewhere. I bought a toy at Big Fun for $21 – Toys R Us had the same one for $28-ish.
