Happy Turkey Day 2009 / Black Friday Shopping

| No Comments


For those who are not from the U.S. here is a quick explanation of what Black Friday Shopping is - on the Friday after Thanksgiving all retailers begin their annual Christmas shopping season, and everyone tries to lure shoppers to their store by announcing limited quantity, too-good-to-be-true deals (like $199 for a brand new laptop, or $250 for a 42" LCD HDTV).

Naturally people get in line days before opening day on Friday to be the first in the door (usually at 5:00 or 6:00 a.m.) to get the deal. Me? You'll never find me at one of these lines. I love sleep too much to wake up in the middle of the night for these deals, and there is really nothing that I want right now that would warrant getting in line for (maybe a great deal on a house in L.A., and that's a BIG MAYBE).

So since my brother Philip is in town we decided to go shopping at one of my current favorite retailer tonight - Banana Republic, only to be notified that EVERYTHING AT THAT SPECIFIC STORE IS 50% OFF. Hmmm. What happened to Black Friday? It is only Thursday!

I guess Black Friday comes early in bad economic times.

Yes, I did some crazy shopping at the store.
