Black Friday 2 Cents

Shopping Terms:

  • Black Friday is the beginning of the holiday shopping season.  One of the busiest, and most unbearable days.
  • Pink Friday is the same day as Black Friday except participating retailers donate portions of their proceeds to charitable causes.
  • Cyber Monday is the Monday immediatelly after Black Friday when retailers offer savings.

Last year I wasn’t home for Black Friday because I was working sales at Sony in Tinton Falls.  This year I am home, and shocked to hear from my wife that more than likely she wouldn’t be going out for any major shopping that day.  The crowds, limited availability, and other factors have done this to who I refer to as the Bargain Shopping Queen.  I don’t blame her because for the most part the hardest part of that day is standing in lines freezing while waiting to get in to get what you want.  If that has no problems then you need to make sure you go right to where you want to be in the store because when a store says “Limited Quantities” they usually mean it.  I have heard stories about stores only having a few of an item at a price, and then the price is back to normal shortly after.  I think if a store is going to have a Black Friday sale that they should be required to keep the merchandise that price for a certain amount of time… not quantity.  Stop teasing, and start pleasing.  These are just my 2 cents.
