Victoria (KAVU) The big holiday savings isn’t over yet; those great bargains didn’t stop with black Friday special savings.
Cyber Monday is to take place Monday with several stores starting early Sunday night.
Black Friday may have ended, but Cyber Monday is barely beginning. The nationwide online shopping experience gives shoppers a second chance at all those Black Friday prices.
When your patience is tested and ran short during black friday there’s a second chance that’s just one click away.
“I’m going to check it out and see what good deals there are sometimes there are really good deals you can’t pass up if not I’m going to come into the store and see what else they have,” Sepulveda said.
Sepulveda said that online shopping is convenient and you don’t have to wait in those long lines.
However, the fall back is that you can’t touch, try on, or test your merchandise and Darius Turner said he just prefers to shop in stores instead.
“I’m very hands on and that’s basically my opinion of it,” Turner said.
Being a hands on shopper could be one disadvantage of Cyber Monday, but Sepulveda said there are others.
“Having to wait and probably shipping and handling sometimes people have had trouble if it’s damaged and having to wait another week or two; verses in store you can get it that day,” Sepulveda said.
Assistant Manager of Best Buy said Cyber Monday this year is expected to have a huge turnout here in Victoria.
“Best Buy like I said last year did a lot of revamping to their web page and with it being a lot more user friendly and with everyone doing online shopping I feel that it will be a high turn around this year,” Edward Ochoa said.
