I want to start off by wishing everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! Not only is Thanksgiving a great day to spend with family and friends, it is also the best time of the year to shop. The time has finally arrived, Black Friday. It is no doubt the best time of the year to buy. The best discounts only happen on Black Friday. This year, stores decided to change things up a bit. Instead of opening their doors at 5am like they used to, they are opening at midnight. To me, it only make sense because people are already lined up by midnight anyways. This gives people more time to shop and spend more. Why make people wait in line in the cold for hours?
A new trend that came up this year is the pre-black friday sales that is happening online and even in stores. Instead of waiting for cyber monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving for online deals, places like amazon launched their pre-same as early as the Monday before Thanksgiving. This year, online Black Friday sales are projected to surpass store’s Black Friday sales revenue. More people are shopping on their phones and their laptops. If this trend continues, would people continue to line up and camp out in front of stores? What would happen to the tradition Black Friday energy that people are so excited about? This method however does eliminate the problems Black Friday causes.
I love Black Friday and it is the one day of the year to get good deals on. The first thing I did this morning was to browse through the online deals happening right now. Some people are not so into the Black Friday thing, but I think it is a great way to spend time with your family. It is great to see people with so much energy and excitement. Although I do feel bad for those who have to work during this crazy day…
