  • So the prices aren't necessarily as low as they could or should be. So what? The consumer is getting the experience of being part of the magic of Black Friday, the thrilling exuberance that comes from being a part of something truly larger than himself, a throng of gentle souls all coming together with single-minded purpose. I won't say that I believe in magic, not exactly, but there is something almost enchanting about the day. A shimmer in the air, an transformational electricity. There are no lines on this day, no mere crowds. Rather, there is only human potential, human bond, humanity. I'm surprised, in fact, that stores do not charge us for being permitted to take part in such an affair. There, my friend, is something to be thankful for.

    Or a lawsuit where they all trampled that minimum wage employee to death and caused the store to have to close for 10 minutes to clean up the blood, costing lots of money.

  • Well, yeah. Consumers have now been properly conditioned to associate the Black Friday stampede with big sales. You don't actually have to provide the sales anymore. You can lop a penny off the price, call it a 'doorbuster sale' and it'll be gone before you know it.
  • I'm fairly sure that if I ran a store, I could put out a full color flyer with 'Doorbuster' Black Friday deals that were higher on everything I sold and as long as the ad got enough penetration, I'd have enough morons lined up overnight to make it worth my while. Seriously, people are nuts.
  • Earlier this year your dollar was worth more than it is today. So things cost more now. Get used to it, since welfare benefitters can now vote themselves benefits its only going to get worse.

    Thanks Obama.

    I recall it was the police that shut the doors (to the protests of the shoppers) and they don't give a fark how much money it costs the store. I think they wound up closing it for the entire day.

    It's quite possibly the most important inter-personal experience a person can have. Zen-like.
  • I always thought that the week after Christmas was a better deal. All the outlets are trying to dump their inventory and really slash prices.
    But we would miss the holiday crush wouldn't we?

  • For instance, a KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer is to be sold at Sears Friday for $319.99. But the retailer offered the same mixer for $296 in March, Decide told the Journal.

    And I paid $260 for a 6-quart KitchenAid Professional 600 earlier in the year, which I'll be gifting. Waiting until this time of year to start buying means passing up some genuine bargains.
