What are you doing on Black Friday?

It’s becoming as synonymous with Thanksgiving as turkey, football, and unbuckling your belt. Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving,  is the crazy, chaotic, consumer extension of the holiday and it’s getting crazier and more chaotic every year.

According to the National Retail Fund an estimated 152 million people shopped on Black Friday last year spending more than 11 billion dollars. This year could be even bigger with some stores opening their doors Thursday night before the turkey has even gotten cold. Are you shopping on Black Friday?

One thought on “What are you doing on Black Friday?

  1. I loved shopping on Black Friday. My daughter, granddaughter and a friend have shopped on Black Friday for years. We make a day of it….get up early, shop, have breakfast, shop some more, then lunch and shop some more. In between we hit up the coffee shops. With the stores opening at different times, some on Thursday, some on Friday, it will change the way we shop if we even do it anymore. I’m very disappointed as it was something I looked forward to. No more Black Fridays.
