    Hi,

    Black friday sales are the sales at various retail stores the friday after thanksgiving - this year on Nov 23. Most outlets will offer deep discounts on their merchandise and open stores early (some as early as 5 a.m.). the items with the biggest discounts sell fast and sometimes the stock is limited so it sells out fast. you can save a lot of money if you know what you want and are quick to grab it. most newspapers advertise sale prices earlier too. but it is quite an experience - i've done it a couple of times but it is not something i would recommend unless you want to buy a lot of things. the polite, friendly americans you see suddenly turn into this yelling, screaming, running mass of people to get to the stuff. happy shopping!!

    Mythraeyi is right - I have heard that it is pandemonium in the morning. If you intend to buy anything - make sure you know what you are buying and when the store opens be in line to make a beeline to the item that you want. Usually most stores have a limited stock of what they advertise at the discounted price - if it is gone, it is gone! I have never once gone shopping early in the morning - I may go later in the day if I find a parking spot - if not forget it!!

    Hello All,
    Anyways I am not going for shopping on black friday.
    Its just a accumulation of junk things at your home unless you need specific things.
    HAPPY SHOPPING TO ALL!!
