Retailers are pulling out all the stops to attract shoppers this holiday season...
Black Friday may signal the official start to the holiday shopping season, but this year, the deals are coming even earlier.
Daily deals on everything from electronics, clothing and toys are being offered to draw recession-conscious shoppers to the stores.
For the first time during the holidays, Target is offering to match competitors' prices.
Sears is offering weekly deals between now and Christmas.
Walmart rolled out a campaign weeks ago, pricing 100 toys at $10 each.
Not to be outdone, Toys-R-Us has already unveiled hundreds of early bargains.
One that might be the hardest to get, Zsu Zsu Pets, are priced below $10.
There are also deals on higher-priced items.
One of the hottest high-tech gifts is Mindflex, a game where a headband uses your brain waves to move a ball through an obstacle course.
No matter the gift, shoppers already out in force say there is a bigger message beyond the sale signs: Retailers may be big on bargains and small on inventory this holiday.
