TV Prices Down, Some Shop For Big Screen In Time For Superbowl

For the first time since digital televisions hit store shelves in 2005, sales are dropping and the slow down is expected to continue.

Holiday sales were also lower then projected so stores are using big events like the Superbowl to draw in customers.

Several people shopped for TVs at the Best Buy in Morehead City Thursday looking for a deal.

Customer Solutions Manager, Joshua Sutton, says a lot of people are coming in just for the sales and many know what they want before they even enter the store.

Many stores say TV sales always a see a little boost in the few days before the super bowl to have a big screen to watch the game.

    Speaking of TV's, I happened to drive to Raleigh today and took a look at some of the LCD TV's at the hhgregg store on Capital Boulevard. Very impressive prices. We need one here in Greenville now that Circuit City has flown the coop, and it would give Best Buy some healthy competition.

    Us "commoners" are manipulated, lied to and no telling what... Between now and Nov. 2012, am not going to reduce my stock exposure in my 401k and Roth. The Democrats know that they are out of the White House if they don't get the economy humming.
