  • I agree with you totally. I think that the desparation of the retailers feeds the greed of individuals.

    Now they are really impinging on Thanksgiving Holidays by opening up the store at odd hours.

    Do we really save all that much? Shouldn't our families be more important than a TV set?

    Yeah, I went to the local WM just to witness the madness. Beyond ridiculous. If restaurants and theaters have capacity limits, stores should too. It really wasn't safe.

    I wonder if the lady being charge with assault saved enough on her towels to pay for her lawyer and legal fees?

  • I've done it once a long time ago. NEVER again.

    I think Kelly has a great idea but it will be deemed socialist and that the market should have it's way.

    Soooo, let's just boycott Black Friday.

    Not so sure about Kelly's statement on giving rain checks. When WM put out their flyer for Black Friday it state right on the front page---No Rain Check sale good for only items in stock at the time.----Also don't believe they really had all the items for sale that was in the flyer.

    I tryed to get a couple of items and didn't find any of them on Wed, Thur nite or Fri. Had to fight thru the group to even get to the one item I was after same items there that were there on Wed.

    The sale could have really been a problem if there would have been a fire or power outage Thur nite with the amount of people in the store. I really think that is something that needs to be looked into, how many people can be in the store for those sales.

  • Part of the problem is the greed of the stores, they should have to honor rain checks on all sale items. And have the same sales avalible on-line and have to honor all of these sales with rain checks. Now for the child like behavior of people that even attend these events, I have no answear, they are idiots. Myself it is a good day to stay home and watch TV with the great sale I got on line after Christmas.
