Once Upon A Time, Black Friday Shopping began at 5 am on the Friday AFTER Thanksgiving. Over the last few years though, the time has gotten earlier and earlier. Today Black Friday Shopping begins tonight, with times varying by store. I can recall vividly, being over my best friend’s house on Thanksgiving evening and we would pour over the flyers looking for which stores and what buys we would aim to get. We would create a strategy and break into teams to attack different stores simultaneously, thus increasing our chances of getting everything on our shopping lists. We would wake up at the crack of dawn and race to be there first, to only find the people who had camped there the night before in the very front of the line. Best Buy a few years back actually had employees outside with Dunkin Donut’s coffee to warm up us eager shoppers. It’s just not the same.
Last week I talked about finding great buys at Holiday Shopping Events, but if you haven’t found one to attend and have yet to start your holiday shopping, tomorrow or tonight is another great opportunity to start. You only need patience, strategy and energy. If you have that, then you’re prepared to take on the great feat. Are you going to take advantage of any deals tomorrow?
