To sum up things so far, with 56 members voting:
Walmart is #1 with 13.1% followed fairly closely by Target at 10.8% of respondents.
Kohls & J.C.Penney are tied at 5.5% closely followed by Toy-R-Us, K-Mart, Best Buy, & Macys.
Somewhat surprising to me is Sears lackluster showing at only 2.0% since they have broad merchandise and good deals.
J.C.Penney's showing is a bit up from last year I think (I didn't look), as they are making a better effort this year.
Best Buy always gets a lot of noise on this site as an electronics leader, but their showing is always lower because their size and range of merchandise is smaller than the department stores (or is it just because Dev/BigJimSlade won't be camping out there this year?)
Not so many people going to outlet centers. Maybe because many of the other stores will be open all night too, now (and outlet centers aren't near everyone's homes).
For online, Amazon is expected to be the big winner (of course), but people are also expecting to shop Target.com, BestBuy.com, and Walmart.com.
Anyone else want to add your plans? Or change your earlier response to reflect changes in plans?
