Black Friday is quickly approaching us but

26 replies 247 views Edited Nov 13, 2012

C'mon SEARS, KMART, KOHLS, TARGET, WALMART all open @ 8PM on TURKEY DAY, before Black Friday.  It doesn't really help retailers and it doesn't help you.   I've worked about 10 Black Friday's and its not worth the hassle.  Stay home with family and spend time with your loved ones.   Life is too short!!   You will just spend the money on something else.  Nothing really special happens except tons of traffic, no parking spaces, long lines.   Stay home and be with family.

Black Fridays are overrated.  Its really stores just trying to get rid of their left over inventory.  You'll never see the top of the line brands on sale when it comes to electronics.  And "Cyber Mondays"' is an even bigger scam lol.

¤ I work for one of the mentioned retailers above, and working at the warehouse, we are NOT pushing out leftover inventory from the stores.  All new freight has been pushed through our warehouse to the stores from our distributors

I don't mind stores opening at 8PM for Black Friday sales.

 

I usually go to my parents house for Thanksgiving dinner and the usual family drama.  So on my way home it's a good opportunity to swing by a store if I'm interested in a sale item without having to make a separate trip.

You don't need to be there at 3AM.  They wil be better deals during the day time at normal hours.  The general public is still un aware of this.  Sure, you might be a great discount maybe, but you will just spend something on something silly. You'll never catch me at a black friday or be one of those crazy door busters!!!  It doesn't pay!

I usually go just to laugh at people from the parking lot.

Life is too short!! No real reasons why retailers need to be on turkey night.   I've worked my fair share of them, major retailers still don't make their goal. Your loved ones will quickly be gone before you know it.  Retailers, after black Friday will still have even better deals.  

 

Will never be a door buster!
