With Thanksgiving coming on Thursday (to celebrate how native Americans saved the immigrants behinds once by feeding them turkey), the most important day in a shopping year shopping is just around the corner: Black Friday.
It's the official kick off for the Christmas shopping season. Retail insiders claim that stores only start making a profit on this day and that all the other months are just waiting time leading up to December. Profits use black ink vs. red ink for losses, hence the term Black Friday.
Black Friday has grown into a shopping bonanza with early hour sales and the likes. Fry's, an electronics store with lousy service, bad quality and low prices, is famous for selling items for cents after mail in rebates. Low cost warehouses Wal Mart this year plans on selling an HP Windows laptop computer for $378.
Stores are overcrowded and parking impossible to come by, so don't expect to see me there. But in case you're interested, several sites have overviews of sales (some times much to the dismay of the stores).
