Unlike our neighbours to the south who are known to get pretty rowdy at the sight of a marked down potato peeler, everything was mostly civil with Best Buy employees at Bay and Dundas even greeting customers with a cheerful round of applause as they entered the store.

Shoppers seamed eager to empty their pockets at the many stores offering deals with 30% discounts a common sight.

It's anticipated that the average Canadian will spend around $1,400 on gifts this holiday season from both in-store and online retailers.

One big plus is that the Canadian dollar is slowly on the rise, so spend away, friends.
