Try filtering on income level with this one. Interesting.

@shorty5. Here too. It's crazy. They camped out the whole week.

11/23/11 10:52 pm

Khols, target, old navy. No best buy. Too crazy there.

Yes...unfortunately I work in retail :(

11/22/11 3:02 am

Hell no!! People are already camping outside our Best Buy stores. Ridiculous.

Nobody should get killed trying to buy a microwave or something like that. Lives should not be bargain-able for a 50% discount

I feel for all of you who have to work during the holidays. i can't imagine anything sold at any retail market is worth sending employees to work to open at midnight or to shop at that time. to me the real ows would be if no one showed up.

"Hell No!!!!" would have been a better option.

Even if I weren't broke! It'll be like the last two years, better sales after black Friday because of retailers high hopes for black Friday falling!

I'm knitting gifts for those on my list. It gets them off my back about wanting knitted items, & saves me money.

I will go to Fred Meyer when it opens at 5 AM, then go back home and go to bed. I'd skip it all, but 50% off socks and slippers is a hard deal to pass up. ????

oh hells no...they'd have to be selling LED 3D 55" 240hz TVs for $200 for me to subject myself to that torture.

Not true @durza, the prices really are better than previously listed in the store. There are better sales in store than online and some stores have unadvertised deals in the store. You just have to know your product prices to determine if something is a good deal.

11/17/11 11:59 pm

Black Friday is for idiots you hardly get quality goods and about an month before they make the prices high just to bring them down and make them an sale.

On-line shopping is a lot of fun but hurts your own community. It takes jobs right out of your home town, money out of your schools, and cash flow from your employer. It takes taxes from your city and state that fixes your roads and employs cops and teachers. You rip yourself off. But I do it too.

11/17/11 11:34 pm

black Friday is why someone developed on line shopping

lucyblue. sorry about that. I love local stores. when I first moved to my community 10 yrs ago it was full of them. peeps would say hello to each other on the streets. now restoration hardware, container store. and I never go downtown anymore. all the mom and pops are gone.

We have a small independent shop and black Friday is dead for us now because people shop chain stores full of Chinese trash. They believe they are buying bargains. Really, they are selling out their communities and their country for a bunch of junk that goes into the Goodwill bin within 24 months.

11/17/11 11:18 pm

usually do, but not this year

11/17/11 11:15 pm

I most certainly will. I start at midnight & shop til I pass out. I do 80% of my christmas shopping on Black Friday.

11/17/11 11:00 pm

Only thing I got on black Friday was my dog because they where not open on thanks giving

11/17/11 10:48 pm

I couldn't even if I wanted to...I work at one of them.

11/17/11 4:13 pm

Hate despise and loath shopping at a crowded store with a bunch of rude people ... So hell 2 du No

11/17/11 2:25 pm

I was but apparently a few stores were randomly having huge sales yesterday, so I ended up getting the items I was after for about the same price as they were listed for black Friday, yay! So no, I guess I won't be going after all.

11/17/11 2:06 pm

seriously i would consider a root canal an upgrade over shopping on black Friday.

day. Also the day after thanksgiving is the day I start wearing my Christmas hats. I wear a different hat every day that I work until the last day I work before Christmas. How could I mess with tradition by not being there on black Friday?

Not only am I working on black Friday I volunteered. I had the day off where I work they give you 32 + 8 for thanksgiving. So I was scheduled off for the first time in 7 years but I have 2 new girls at my service desk and I volunteered to help them that day. Mainly so that they will return the next
