TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2011 /CNW/ -- Cyber Black Friday, the online version of the American shopping frenzy, has come to Canada. This year, participating Cyber Black Friday Canadian retailers include Lenovo Canada, TheSource.ca, Amazon.ca and Dell Canada. Because of fierce competition with cross-border shopping, both in-store and online, Canadian retailers have launched Black Friday sales to keep shoppers at home.
Stephen Neufeld, e-Commerce Manager of Lenovo Canada said, "Black Friday sales have been gaining speed in Canada over the last few years. This year Lenovo Canada will have the most aggressive Black Friday sale ever. Starting November 22, Canadians can save up to 58% more on ThinkPad laptops. Between November 24 through November 28, Lenovo Canada will also offer 12 Doorbuster deals on IdeaPad laptops."
Talya Schaeffer, founder of electronic coupon website eCoupons.ca and CyberBlackFriday.ca said, "In some cases, Canadian sales may be better than those of the retailer's U.S. counterpart. Canadian retailers are telling holiday shoppers that there's no need to travel south of the border or even leave home to enjoy Black Friday savings."
For example, Lenovo Canada and Lenovo U.S. websites are offering the popular ThinkPad T420 laptop for $721.65 after Black Friday eCoupon. Since the U.S. Dollar is slightly stronger than the Canadian dollar, Lenovo is actually selling the laptop cheaper in Canada.
