Because I think it has gotten out of hand, and I think the idea of having your sales start on the night of Thanksgiving just to be competitive is absurd. So instead, we will be offering our sale prices this entire week. 20% off everything in the store, with up to 40% off remote starters - units will be starting at $249.95, our lowest price ever. PLEASE SHARE this post if you'd rather spend Thanksgiving evening with your family than deal with swarms of crazed shoppers trying to get the sale price!
