Black Friday

Anyone else participating in this today? Anybody get any good deals? I don't mind getting up early but the people standing in line at Best Buy LAST NIGHT at 5 make me wonder.

Re: Black Friday

There are a ton of Outlet stores in my hometown. I was at Starbucks a few days ago, and they were opening at 3 am today to accomodate the shoppers.

Three. A. M.

Re: Black Friday

You couldn't pay me enough to go out shopping today. Being in a mall, even when it's a weekday in July, actually drains the life out of me. Ugh.

I'm a 100% online shopper.

Re: Black Friday

I just got off work, i worked from midnight to 10 a.m. today. It was the first time i've worked in retail on a black friday, and lemme tell you, it absolutely sucked. When the doors opened at 5, people just came running in, and one of them was like, WHERE ARE THE ZUNES???????? because we had brown zunes on sale for 80 bucks, but she was shit out of luck because my fellow employees gobbled them up before any customer had a chance to get one, and then another chick ran it screaming AGHHHHHHHHH, and i was just like, yeah that's not gonna help you find what you want.

Overall the day was fast paced and it went by pretty quickly, but i was busy 100% of the time, i had my own little two man crew to help me out in my section that i was assigned to, and overall i managed to keep the hot items on the floor, but it was very hectic and overall i was glad that it's a one time a year thing, because i don't have to deal with this again until next year, and that's only if i'm working in retail again. The only break i got was five minutes to eat a donut n drink a soda, n then i had to get back to work again. They promised us lunch but they didn't deliver.

Re: Black Friday

The online revolution is wonderful. Point, click, buy! Got myself a Shoei motorcycle helmet, a Canon Rebel XTi SLR camera, and I finally pulled the trigger on a Garmin Nuvi 660.

Re: Black Friday

im going to lowes later, but im dreading it... I buy for my kids, draw names between my sisters and their spouses (100 buck limit only one person) and buy for everyone in my wife's family...

Usually I do most of my shopping online, but I'll hit the toy stores and the fun ones, like sharper image and spencers (though I don't usually buy anything there... i just like to look...)

Your sisters are getting a raw deal. lol.

As for buying toys, it's probably prudent to go to the toy store and make sure the label doesn't say "Made in China" first hand.

Re: Black Friday

I'm with Schneed and saden (not literally- that would not be cool). I wholeheartedly refuse to go out shopping on Black Friday and just about any other day unless it's for me and an emergency. Online shopping works for me!

Re: Black Friday

A little fun "fact" I just heard yesterday was that it is called black friday because this is the first day of the year that retail companies are operating "in the black" as opposed to "in the red" .Anyone else heard that before?

This isn't true for most retails. Though Black Friday boosts their overall annual profits most public retails operate in the black when you look at their quarterly reports.

LOL! That's funny! Well, I did go out on Black Friday, but not because I wanted to. I needed to purchase a new fridge and oven for the house I'm moving into, and Sears had some great deals that day. Actually, when I was in there, they were having some awesome deals on LCD and Plasma TVs, but alas I didn't get one. Kind of kicking myself over that, but I'm sure they will have some good deals closer to Christmas time.
