Are you ready for Black Friday?
The busiest day of retail shopping is soon approaching, have you made your list of which stores to visit? If you have, set your alarm clock for a bright and early morning, plan an easy outfit and comfy shoes because you're going to to glad you did! Black Friday is almost like an unofficial holiday, bringing people together to buy tons and tons of merchandise. Customers are on the look out for the best deals, from purchasing holiday presents to marked-down prices of electronics. Not only is Black Friday beneficial for us personally, it may be just what the economy needs. Consumer spending definitely contributes to the economy's growth, and Black Friday is used to measure exactly how much money we are spending. In just about two weeks, we can compare this year's sales to last year's. Hopefully, this will be a postive outcome because our country needs it. With internet sales becoming more popular, many Black Friday deals are also available online, perfect for those who want to stay in our warm pj's, have their morning coffee, and shop at the comfort of their homes. But if you do decide to go for the shopping hunt, be careful. Shopping can get dangerous! Here are a few retailers that are advertising huge savings for this crazy day: Macy's, Best Buy, Costco, Kohl's, Macy's, Lowe's, Office Max, Old Navy, Radio Shack, Sears, Staples, Target, Toys 'R Us, Wal-Mart.
