Black Friday shopping is shopping after Thanksgiving. It's one of the most expected time for shoppers to descend on thousands of stores hoping to get great deals. Armed with newspaper ads deals, they shop until they drop. This year is not going to be too different though. The only difference may be that weeks or days ahead of Black Friday, good deals leaks can be found online. In short, Black Friday has to do with black ink expected by retailers during the holiday season.
Bargain hunters know to check the Internet, the good-for-everything shopping bazar. They are looking for door-busting discounts offered by most retailers to attract or trap consumers. For many years now, I have been participating in black Friday shopping. The early birds obviously rise early to get the best deals. What I have noticed is that information is power. Knowing which stores to hit first because the hot toys and gifts are there is so empowering.
Once again, bargain hunters expect to have great deals from the likes of Home Depot, Wal-Mart, HP, Sony, Office Depot, Lowe's, mom and pop stores, clothing companies, Target, Sears, Mervyn's, Gucci, Zara, Gottschalks, Best Buy, Radio Shack, CompUSA, Chico's, Jewelry stores etc. All of these companies will open their doors early to accommodate the shoppers. That's the essence of shopping the day after Thanksgiving.
