BURLINGTON, N.C. -- If the thought of making the mad dash for deals on Black Friday doesn't appeal to you, there are deals to be had right now, almost a solid week before Thanksgiving.
Many stores are sweetening the pot, trying to draw out shoppers earlier and earlier.
At JC Penney's in Burlington, store manager Kendra Ferguson and her team are readying the store for a big doorbuster sale that begins tomorrow.
"This is the Super Bowl of retail. Boots, towels, gifts for me, coats, we have so much on sale. Some prices are lower than Black Friday prices, some will be the same."
BJ's Wholesale Club has turkey trimmings near the front door now, but all of that will be gone by tomorrow, replaced with televisions and other electronics that will go on sale Saturday.
