Last year I noticed some places had fantastic sales (on-line) the day before, and during, Thanksgiving.
I went Black Friday shopping once with my sister and brother-in-law and that was enough to last me for the rest of my life LOL !!! I spent most of the time standing at their van in the parking lot waiting for them to finish hours and hours of shopping. Local television camera crews were in the store - it was a ZOO!!!
