The fourth Thursday of November every year is Thanksgiving Day in the United States.

  3. Huge discounts. In this crazy discount season, many merchants are bleeding and offering 4-5% discounts. If you want to compare with it, it seems that “compelling” or even value-for-money products will sell better.
