DOMINATE BLACK FRIDAY
Black Friday isn’t something you simply wake up for.
You prepare. You plan. You stretch your hamstrings and use elderly relatives to hold your place in line at five different stores around town.
Black Friday ain’t for the delicate.
While the bargain-oblivious sleep the night away, dedicated deal hunters will line up outside of stores. And while amateurs wander the aisles without purpose, seasoned shoppers hit the linoleum running and have a whole holiday’s worth of shopping done before the sun even gets out of bed.
And the stores? They’re glad to have you. And maybe slightly terrified. But mostly glad.
