Is Black Friday Shopping For You?

When people start lining up late Thanksgiving night to take advantage of door-buster deals in the wee hours Friday morning, will you be there?

Love it or hate it, Black Friday is the super bowl of shopping.

And with its arrival only mere days away, the Lower Hudson Valley is abuzz with people talking about the potential savings stores big and small have to offer.

Some people create their own Black Friday “game plans” on what stores to hit and when after they've poured over the announced bargains various retailers have to offer.

There are those so keen on saving they set alarms to wake them up in the wee hours of the night. These folks line up early and some even camp out all night to be able to scoop up the deals they’re after.

Are you one of those shoppers? Do you do Black Friday or do you prefer to stay as far away from stores on the day after Thanksgiving as possible?

It's not for me but I do not see the need for any laws requiring a business to be closed. If you don't want to go shopping than don't go, do you really need a law to help you out with that.

Beth, why do we need a law for that? Just don't go shopping that night or day and problem solved. I am home today and black friday means eating left overs and spending time at home, I don't need a law to help with that, do you?

Black Friday at the Coop in Downtown Peekskill was awesome, but I wouldn't go anywhere near Cortlandt Town Center today.

Patricia, the law would help those working in retail actually get a day off per week (like Sundays) as well as holidays, something that people who work in other lines of work take for granted. Choosing to stay home and not shop is not going to be getting an associate at Walmart the day off.
