News Comment 11

Posted in Uncategorized by Joshua on the November 18, 2011

This year, black Friday is going to be a little different. In fact, for most people, it is going to start on Thanksgiving day. This is because unlike in years past when the doors to stores opened around four or five in the morning, the doors to pretty much every store will be open at midnight. The early birds have lost their edge now.

Last year Wal-mart decided to open their doors at midnight, and places like Best Buy suffered because lot of people had gotten their shopping out of the way and were done by the five oclock opening. This new change has gone into affect for almost every store nation wide. Now, lots of families will spend a good portion of their Thanksgiving day out side of a store like Best Buy instead of around the table for a little food, family, and most importantly football. This also frees up people to get their shopping done before the Iowa Nebraska games kicks off. (Which both team suck so who really cares?)

If you have lots of time on your hands between now and black Friday you can start camping our already! According to the Miami Herald, a couple in Florida is already camping outside of a Best Buy. Of course, Florida has much nicer weather than Midwest Iowa, but go ahead and be my guest and start camping. I’ll wave at you every time I come in and out of work.

    The piece you comment on is more of a comment on another story, rather than a story in itself, Josh. I like that you add context to this whole Black Friday dumbassery, but there are lots of stories on the subject. I don’t do the BF thing anymore (I did try it once) because I don’t want to promote such behavior. I think I’m losing the battle, however.
