With practice set to start for U women, Whalen is ‘energized’

There is so much coach Lindsay Whalen doesn’t know yet.

Not long ago the coronavirus threatened to stop the 2020-21 Gophers women’s basketball season before it started. Even now, with official practices set to start Wednesday, Whalen doesn’t know yet what the shortened, probably five-game preseason will look like. Or when, precisely, the official Big Ten Conference season will begin.

And yet, her overriding emotion as official practices commence?

“I would say energized,” Whalen said.

Whalen is about to enter her third season. Last year a promising start was waylaid by some internal strife — manifesting in the suspension and, ultimately, the transfer of leading scorer Destiny Pitts — leading to a 16-15 record.

But this team feels different.

Whalen and her staff have put an added emphasis on culture. For a team with three starters returning, this season’s Gophers will look far different.

There is the influx of a

Amazon Prime Day, other sales events start holiday shopping season early

Oct. 13 (UPI) — Occurring later this year due to COVID-19, Amazon’s Prime Day began on Tuesday amid direct competition from other retailers that have accelerated the arrival of the holiday shopping season by a few weeks, experts say.

Usually held in July, Prime Day will last through Tuesday and Wednesday. Amazon said it’s spending more than $100 million on promotional activities to aid small businesses and attract new customers during the two-day sale.

Prime Day is available to shoppers in the United States, Britain, the United Arab Emirates, Spain, Singapore, Netherlands, Mexico, Luxembourg, Japan, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria and Australia.

Competitors including Walmart, Best Buy, eBay, Target and Macy’s have also rolled out big sales to compete with Amazon, transforming this week into an unofficial launch of the holiday shopping season — which typically begins with Black Friday on the day after Thanksgiving.

Holiday shopping gets early start with October Prime Day, other sales

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) — Halloween is still weeks away, but retailers are hoping you’ll start your holiday shopping now.

The big push is coming from Amazon, which is holding its annual Prime Day sales event Tuesday and Wednesday, kickstarting the holiday shopping season. It’s the first time Prime Day has been held in the fall, after the pandemic forced it to postpone from July.

Walmart, Best Buy and Target are also offering online deals over the same two days, hoping to lure deal seekers.

“Beat the holiday hustle,” Amazon’s site said on Tuesday. “Holiday savings start now,” a message on Target.com said.

There’s good reason for the early start. Retailers are worried that a rush of online orders later could lead to shipping delays in November and December. And stores want to avoid

‘the unofficial start’ of the holiday season

The timing of Amazon (AMZN) Prime Day this year marks “the unofficial official start to holiday shopping — which is pretty smart,” says Jessica Teich, Good Housekeeping’s products and reviews editor.

”This is definitely going to be the longest holiday shopping season we have seen,” Teich told Yahoo Finance’s The First Trade.

The sales event for Amazon shoppers typically happens in July. However due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was pushed out to October 13 and 14 — ^ weeks ahead of Black Friday.

“Is Prime Day the new Black Friday? One thing is for sure, that Prime Day is absolutely changing the way that we’re shopping,” she added.

Shopping in October rather than up against the holidays avoids massive clog-ups surrounding the shipping windows towards the end of year.

Other retailers like Walmart (WMT), Target (TGT), Best Buy (BBY) and Overstock (OSTK) are holding their own special deals this

Holiday Shopping Is Going to Be Weird This Year. Prime Day Can Help You Get an Early Start.

Holiday shopping, as with everything else this year, will not be normal. It may feel difficult to justify lavish spending when the unemployment rate remains over 7 percent, and many people won’t be able to travel to see their families because of the ongoing pandemic. However, if you are planning on doing presents in spite of 2020, it’s a good idea to get started going early. Retail industry analysts are guessing that online sales will grow up to 35 percent at the holidays compared to last year. Since the uptick in online orders has already taxed the mail system, we can assume that things may slow down even further with the increased demand. And there’s also the chance that more online shopping will cause popular items to go out of stock sooner than you’d expect.

BRIAN SOZZI: I think we can all agree the pandemic will make this a very weird holiday shopping season. From earlier deals to compressed shipping windows, consumers would be wise to shop now instead of December 24. But if you do get all your shopping done on Prime Day, does that mean Black Friday is no longer a thing?
