Delay in the Ads

Seems like last year ads were coming out much quicker. I think Kohl’s had their ad out about October 26th or so. I wonder if this is how it will go this year. Or will November 1st be a large ad day to catch up?

We've already gotten ads from 5 stores. Compared to last year, it seems that we are right on track.

Here is the BFads.net article about last year's ad release schedule and their chart showing the timeline:

Thanks. I guess with a lack of a big ad yet and last year we already had Kohls it kind of threw my perception off.

I expect things to start ramping up late this week into next week.

I am surprised to see so many ads released today.

It seems as if the ads have slowed down again, after getting a whole bunch last week.

If history repeats itself, the next 3-4 days should be pretty active.

FWIW: Last year Meijer, CVS, Macy's, Staples, Walmart, Best Buy and Dick's all came out the dame day... The 7th.

Today is the 7th. Meijer and Staples have came out... We could see Walmart, Best Buy and Dick's today. It's possible!

(If Walmart comes out, I look for it to come out overnight)

I thought Macy's and CVS were already out
