Building the Ultimate Affordable Home Theater: Black Friday Edition

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

There’s no better time to buy electronics, especially products for your home theater, than Black Friday. The year’s lowest prices on TVs, audio components, and video game consoles mean that you can put together an impressive entertainment system for under $1000. And this isn’t a collection of leftover no-name electronics—we’re including the latest technology from the best brands in the business.

Getting the best picture and sound for your money

At the heart of any good home theater is a stunning display. We’re going to go with a 50-inch TV, which is a great size for the average family room. This Black Friday weekend (11/24-26), the Samsung UN50KU6300 will drop to just $398. That’s an Ultra HD, HDR-capable Smart TV for less than four hundred bucks, a price that was unheard of even just last year. The KU6300 will play all of the latest content from both physical and streaming sources in 4K UHD resolution, with HDR, which means the picture will have the extra clarity of 4K and contain a dynamic range of tones that a normal TV could never display. This set is probably the bang-for-the-buck TV deal of the year.

Thanksgiving & Black Friday Mobile Traffic Up 60% From 2010

Sunday, November 27th, 2011

Purchasing goods on cellular phones is a growing medium for ecommerce, with users sourcing deals from their phones and tablets before visiting physical stores.  A new study by Usablenet tracked various retail websites and tracked 18 million page views and 1 million mobile users over Thanksgiving and Black Friday. It saw mobile traffic to its clients was up 60% from the same period last year, with Thanksgiving sending more traffic than the following day. Usablenet also found that iOS devices accounted for 42% of the traffic, trumping Android, and trouncing the tiny traffic from Windows and Nokia devices.

Black Friday Shopping Madness Around the Corner!

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

In less than a week, consumers will hit the stores in a wild frenzy to shop for great deals.  Some are even camping outside stores now, waiting for a full week to get the best prices of the year.  A survey, conducted by the National Retail Federation (NRF) and BIGresearch, shows that 74 million people definitely plan to hit the stores Thanksgiving weekend, while another 77 million said they will do so if the bargains are worth braving the cold and the crowds.

Here at Abt, no need to wait outside, or leave your Thanksgiving dinner early.  We plan on having a great sale all day!

Abt Shipping Department Works Overtime

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

Lots can be said about Santa during the holiday season, but we here at Abt have our own holiday delivery people: our shipping department.  For the Black Friday weekend everyone in the department had a little extra coffee and little less sleep to get each and every order picked, wrapped up, and shipped out.  Packages from across the country needed to make their way to their respective owners and the department pushed their efforts to the limit.  Even with some difficulties.

“Well, where do I begin?” chuckled Eric R. from Abt’s shipping department when asked if they ran into any problems.   “There was about a 60% increase in sales from last year and we were doing everything we could to get those packages out and delivered in time”.  Everything, including working with our own IT Department to learn from any of this year’s difficulties to tweak our shipping system and adapt to any future problems or delays.

At Abt, we pride ourselves on having all our workers work solely in our building.  We don’t outsource and that’s because good customer service and satisfaction comes from hard work you can see and trust. Special thanks to all those in the department, who went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our customers get their holiday gifts.

Is Cyber Monday the New Black Friday?

Monday, November 30th, 2009

Black Friday, a flood of people entered the Abt showroom for our first early opening in history. Will Cyber Monday realize the same flurry of people on Abt.com and in our phone sales department?

Traditionally, Black Friday has been the busiest shopping day of the year. In recent years, Cyber Monday has given Black Friday a run for its money. What will this year bring? Will Cyber Monday outshine Black Friday???
