LANCASTER, PA – Nearly half (42%) of all regular Black Friday customers expect to shop more this holiday season as a result of lower gas prices, according to a recent consumer survey released by NACS. But what will shoppers be on the lookout for?
According to Forbes, a Federal Aviation Administration official predicted earlier this year that as many as 1 million drones could be given as holiday gifts in 2015. But even more novel than drones as a hot holiday gift is the choice of where consumers can purchase them. Turkey Hill Minit Markets, a convenience-store chain with stores across Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, is featuring a Stunt Series Drone for $49.99 among its Black Friday deals.
"We knew drones were expected to be sought-after gifts this year, so we wanted to give our customers an easy way to get one at a great price," Kim Hertzog, public relations manager at Turkey Hill Minit Markets, said in a press release. "Since the demand is high, we'll only be able to have a limited quantity of Stunt Series Drones at each store. But that's just the beginning of the deals for Black Friday at Turkey Hill."
Turkey Hill will offer each shopper a free 16-ounce cup of coffee, fountain or slushie on Black Friday. Customers can also enter automatically for a chance to win a 50" big screen TV when they use their Turkey Hill Rewards Card when purchasing any item on the store’s list of Black Friday specials. For 2015, that list ranges from ice cream to prepaid phones.
“We sell gift cards from most of the top name stores that people will be headed for. So why not boost your fuel savings by making Turkey Hill your first Black Friday stop?” Hertzog added. “Enjoy a free coffee on us, grab a drone while supplies last and get some great gifts for folks on your shopping list."
