With Thanksgiving less than a week away, you may be starting to think about Black Friday shopping and the best stores to shop this year.
Everyone wants a good deal. The whole point of Black Friday shopping is to save a buck, or if you’re lucky a lot of them. There are some, like my brother, who just getting out and being a part of the mix. I’m usually of the mentality that if I don’t need something, I don’t venture out into crowds like that. Usually regular weekends are too people-y for me, so Black Friday weekend? I’ll pass.
Even though I’m not into it, last year 66.5 million people were in stores looking for holiday scores. Talking to a lot of friends who plan to head out into the chaos this year have the eye on larger ticket items. Hearing a lot about TV’s, computer’s, video game console’s, stuff like that. And I get it, with the high cost of those items, to be able to save some money is definitely nice. And hey, if it’s a gift for someone else, may open up a few extra dollars to put something else with it.
But maybe you’re wondering just where these good deals are found. Well, our friends at WalletHub have crunched the numbers so we don’t have to and put together a list of the best stores for Black Friday shopping.
