Black Friday 2007

It looms before us with a toothy grin... eagerly waiting for your holiday shopping dollars. Some of you will be heading out into its hungry clutches in a few hours.

This year, Black Friday falls on November 23 and it promises no less than a vast array of opportunities to kick off the holiday season.

Two days ago, plezWorld was in a cold sweat, with fingernails bitten to the quick because a Nintendo Wii was no where to be found in a Metro Atlanta store. Thankfully, offered up an opportunity to get a bundled Wii for less than $350... the SugarPlum will get her Christmas Wish!

My wife will head out at the break of dawn to find us a bargain on some winter coats, but a majority of our shopping will not be accompanied with the frenzy of Black Friday. I don't like crowds and the thought of fighting with a suburban housewife over the 20 to 30 Wii's that have been promised to our local Best Buy and Toys R Us does not appeal to me in the slightest.

But for those of you who subscribe to such manufactured madness, I will leave you with a link to Black Friday Specials for every major retailer in the US.

I work for a small town newspaper where I was assigned the "Black Friday" story, even though there aren't a lot of shoppers out in said town yet. Lots of pictures of shopowners in empty stores. Beats fighting for parking spots at the mall, though.
