What if they had a Black Friday and nobody came?

Friday, November 23, 2012

I hate to sound like a' spoil sport', but is THIS what it's really about?

Is they anything that any of us need so badly that it can't be purchased on any of the other 364 days of the year?

How do you feel about this?

    There sure wasn't anything this year I wanted on Black Friday and I did no shopping. but last year I did want a blue Nintendo Wii and went to Wal-Mart Thursday night...never again. Never ever again.

    I don't do them either. Ridiculous. If one plans to purchase something, they will purchase it at 8am or 9am if there was no "5am" or Thurs. now. Absolutely ridiculous. It's become about "things" rather than family. Sad.

    The Black Friday sales are just starting to come into Canada, and are much lower key than in the U.S. When I see stories on tv about the huge crowds, pushing and even fights that break out in some of the lines, I know that I would never take part in sales like that.

I've been cutting back on my Christmas spending since I retired. We live in a small town and I do as much shopping as I can locally, do some of the rest on-line and make only one visit to a large mall... no later than the first week of December. I also make charitable donations to a charity which I know my children are particularly interested in as part of their gift.

    The great prices are too tempting. So I don't look at the ads. The crowds just aren't worth the stress of Black Friday, or Black Thursday now uh? So I agree with you.

    I agree! I don't like crowds and I don't do Black Friday
