So where is anyone on Q celebrating "Singles Day"?

 

While I wouldn't mind if they had a better banner, I'm not rushing over to HSN or Evine to spend money because the banner is better.


 

 

Agreed.

 

 

And then you have those who get all indignant, and say, "How dare stores have sales today! It shouldn't be about getting deals!"

 

As I said, I don't look to a store, or e-tailer, to make me all warm and fuzzy about any holiday.

 

Nor would I allow a store to take away what a holiday means to me, because, the reality is, they don't have the ability to do that.

 

Any holiday is what (collective) YOU make of it.

 

If one decides to pout and sulk, because the world isn't run the way that they think it should be, then I'm sorry, that's all on (collective) you, not the store or e-tailer.

And can you pick me up one?

 

Nothing has changed my mind about buying.  I buy what I want, when I want it, not because it's a supposed holiday, event or anything else.

well, QVC certainly sells enough goods made in China, so I am not sure why they wouldn't capitalize (cause this country is about capitalism) on ONE MORE SHOPPING EVENT.  Singles day is huge in Asian countries and I guess they want to get in on the action - our country is made up of a lot of difficult cultures and this means more $$ to them

 

that said, I would not want them to use veteran's day to sell goods, but it would have been nice to see a banner recognizing our vets.  My father fought in WWII, as well as my uncle.

 

BTW - HSN - didn't the Q buy them?  if so, it is the same company, in case people want to boycott the Q Smiley Wink

Interesting.

 

 


Lots of people?  Who?


I shouldn't have said 'lots'. 

 

A choice few. 

 

BUT.....I learned today that you aren't allowed to mention posters by name or your post will get poofed. 

 

Happened to me 2x today already! 

 

No regrets though!


a choice "few"? really? I have been here a long time, and I have never seen anyone not wish to honor vets.

Re: Really, Happy Singles Day! ???? What about our VETRANS!!!!!!! !

CNNMoney had an article about Singles Day.

A QVC mention:

 

"Caporaso said that some U.S. firms are trying to capitalize on the holiday -- even though it falls on Veterans' Day and is close to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.


He said that his firm is working with QVC (QVCA) on a Singles' Day site in the U.S. this year.


But most U.S. firms are focusing more on Singles' Day sales in China instead of America. Calvin Klein, online jeweler Blue Nile, Costco and Macy's are all pushing Singles' Day in China for example."

 

Seems like QVC is the first to market it in the states.  

The success will determine if people buy the selected items or not.

Makes stockholders happy.
