Over the past 2 months that the BF section has been open I have seen people ask the How, What, When, Where about how the ads are leaked and why the companies are getting upset over the leaks. Here is a good news story that is off the wire services that takes you inside it and I thought I would post this. It was a great read.

Fox 5 News in DC just mentioned Gotta Deal.com. They said the site leaks the ads before Black Friday.:) Oh and they said you can get to this site through their site.

But some retailers actually like the extra publicity these sites afford them. Representatives of Ace Hardware told Vincent that they're thrilled the ad leaked out, because the store is not always top of mind for Black Friday shoppers.

Now THAT'S how I think stores should react to the BF frenzy :banana:
