November 12th, 2006, 06:51 AM #1Is it the holiday or something else?
I don't know about the rest of you folks, but I've not had a single sale the last 4 days, and my clicks seem a bit off than what they should be.
Is Veterans Day a generally slow time for sales? Or am I missing something else?

MB, sales just before the elections decreased. Just my own theory, but we've tracked sales for six years and I notice that there is always a slow down right around elections.
Perhaps all of the TV and audio campaign ads depress sales as consumers are innundated with negatives. I suspect that you can't bombard consumers with negatives and expect it not to have an effect on consumer willingness to spend. Don't know if this has an effect or not - but we always note a downturn around elections time.

Thanks for the reply guys. Elections didn't cross my mind as a possible cause. I'm also guessing since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, the next week or so will be equally as slow. Maybe after the 23rd things will pick back up...

Yeah, it's molasses on all fronts.
But now that you mention Thanksgiving, I do remember that I normally pace the floor for a couple of weeks in November. Too bad I can't just chain everyone in front of their computers--and the only way to unlock the chain would be to buy at least $50 worth of stuff!! And no reversing allowed!
