Thinking of buying a chess set for a Christmas present? Christmas is nearly upon us again, amazing as it appears. Its been a swift and eventful year in the chess business and it appears every year, the silly season of selling comes around faster and faster. The Christmas present market is essentially what keeps most chess retailers in operation. Without this intense amount of sales it could become an industry that is very hard to endure in.I do believe Christmas 2015 will see plenty of deals made available in the chess set market. As competition becomes cutthroat between rival retailers who battle it out to win within the Christmas shoppers. Just when we thought things were improving with regard to product quality, it appears specific retailers relying greatly on cheap far eastern sets of highly questionable quality have been left by the drive for cheaper than affordable sets.I do recall, a chess set is not only for Christmas! You'll most definitely get whatever you pay for \u0026amp; be certain you steer clear of the cheap horrible sets from retailers who are obsessed with cost and nothing else!
