That was MC Hammer


MC Sports bankruptcy


If that's the case, then we probably shouldn't expect a Toys R Us ad either.

Hmm... Hadn't heard about that one, but an ad seems to still be possible. Toys r us bankruptcy

CNN Money article wrote:The bankruptcy filing comes just ahead of the holiday season, the busiest time for the year for Toys 'R' Us. The company said it plans on keeping its 1,600 Toys 'R' Us and Babies 'R' Us stores open across the world, though the Wall Street Journal reported that the company will eventually close some of its underperforming locations as part of the bankruptcy process.

MC Sports on the other hand is completely dead I believe... The article from February that I posted said it was closing all the stores. I remember going to the liquidation sale here (stuff still overpriced) and seeing them selling everything down to the naked mannequins lol

Thing is. My list is pretty much already created. The retailers that wait so long are missing the boat. There is no competitive advantage to be gained by waiting until this week. The main big ads are already out.

Just waiting on Justice for me

Looking at that list I am shocked we aren't just getting notifications like crazy for new ads posted so far this week. If they drag into next week I would be shocked.

Although I have been happy with most of the ads so far. It seems there's at least 1 or 2 things I like from each of the major ads.

FYI, these ads are missing Official Deal Announcement posts. Hiker created zip and PDF files for them, but when I went to post the links I discovered that the posts did not exist.

Code: Select all

Fios by Verizon
Meijer Saturday Sale
Pet Supplies Plus

We should see 8 ads a day from here on out. At least that's what it averages out to be. Fingers crossed!

TRU just got posted. I don't have an Olympia near me but they just got posted too. I would like to see what GameStop and Menards have.

I am very hopeful Justice has the 50% off sale again.

I am ready to get this whole thing started. Although it's gonna be a crazy long day on Thanksgiving.
