Those of you who have been around for a few years know I'm a vocal
supporter of the Black Friday mania that comes in the wee small hours
the day after Thanksgiving. My mom and I have been heading out in a
sleep-deprived state for years. We're not the types to get aggressive
and lose our minds if we don't get a TV or particular toy, but we do
love watching the crowds and we generally have a pretty good time. We
laugh, we shop—we're the NON-crazy Black Friday shoppers!
few years now, I've been conducting this Black Friday poll as a measure
of our industry's confidence on an individual level. Please take a
moment to weigh in on what you anticipate your holiday spending will be
like this year...and please, please, please send me an email
or post a comment to share your Black Friday story. What are you
shopping for this year? A new TV? Purchases you've been putting off
because of the economy?
I'd like to hear about the experience itself, too. The media is predicting a huge turnout for Black Friday this year. If you're a veteran (like me and my mom), does it seem crazier than previous years?
One other note—The latest industry news will continue to be posted on WindowandDoor.com, but next week there will be no WDweekly. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
