Is it better to buy winter wear and boots after the snow has melted?
Yes! Winter wear, especially boots, are specific to snow and sell out quickly!
So many consumers wait until Boxing day and Cyber Monday for deals.
The highest sales of the year, in one day online, Cyber Monday, with consumers spending $10.8 billion, according to Adobe Analytics source. Purchases totaled $12 million a minute between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. PT, with around 37% of total purchases coming from smartphones as more shoppers migrate to buying on social media.
However, are you truly getting the "best" or "lowest "prices?
Putting it to the test and asking around we found that more e-commerce business have better deals at the end of the season and sometimes well into the next for the best possible prices.
We have a 4-year-old boy who is growing monthly, and we have spent $130.00 CAD and upward for winter boots right before first snow fall but already into the "Winter Season" only to find that by the end of season for us here is Canada is usually around March, that those $130 boots will not be fitting him next year!
So, we started looking and found businesses although may have limited sizes in certain styles or vice versa, the pricing is right, and now! We have become pretty good guessers in how much our toddlers’ feet grow and size of clothing, so we took full advantage of his snow suit and winter boots for next year and sized up!
This might not be for everyone; some parents are still a bit hesitant to jump all in but you can't go wrong with paying $130 dollars for boots but also including a full 3 piece snow suit to that order!
With today’s pricing and the way, the market flows its rare that prices ever go down for the future in products and styles. Children are the exception to the rule with last season winter wear, my son already knows and embraces the word...Vintage!
