It’s four days away….ahh!!
I will be working from 7am-6pm. 11 hours of hell with a half hour lunch :( This is my 8th black friday in retail, and I don’t recall ever shopping black friday besides where I work….

Do you wake up early and go black friday shopping?
What are your black friday triumphs and horror stories?
What are your plans this year?
Any one working it?

Unfortunately I am working on Black Friday…..It’s not something that I’m too happy about. I’m working from 8am-5pm, it’s not quite 11 hours, but I’m a pregnant woman, do they really expect me to be on my feet for 9 hours straight and not b*tch about it??? We’ll see how that goes…the worst part is that I’m from out of town, so I planned on spending the weekend with my family; I was just added to the schedule last night (randomly)…so that just blows all of my plans!!!! :(
My biggest black friday pet peeve: Customers’ snobby attitudes!!! It’s the holidays. be happy…tis the season to be jolly!!!!!!! right?!?! :/

I never shop on Black Friday. People will camp out one or two days early just to wait in line in this freezing cold weather. I rather go to sleep.
Online shopping…maybe

I’m sticking to online shopping, maybe going to the UO on my school’s campus to check out the sale. But the sale’s from 8 – 10 so I don’t have to wake up too early.

I’m going when its still dark right when the shops open along with my friends =P I did it last year and it was pretty crazy and tiring but it was a lot of of fun and I came out of it with a lot of good stuff. I plan on hitting h&m, urban outfitters, DSW, jcrew, etc. Last year we went from 6am-10am.

btw, what clothing/shoe stores are having the biggest sales?

I do love black friday but for the past 3 yrs I’ve had to work. Although I’ve been in retail for over 7 years now, I’ve always managed to squirm out of it during college since I left town to go home. Anyways, I can’t complain because I’m only there to take the clothes off mannequins if needed…other than that its a “Lets clean the visual prop room” kind of day. However it does start at 3AM to help set sales and prep store for the 4AM opening :(

And yes Kia, I agree…..do not complain about lines on black friday, its just ridiculous!!!!!

also check out naughtybaubles.etsy.com for a major sale and use coupon code CHIC15 to save 15% on Sat and Sun!!!!!

I would love to do Black Friday but the weather in Washington has been pretty ‘effing cold! The roads are incredibly icy and I won’t be able to even make it to a Family Thanksgiving let a long BF.

So, online for me! I actually have a couple carts full at the moment. Waiting until tomorrow to see how the discounts fare. :)

So many people retail on this site! I’ve been avoiding that since everyone I know who has done it says its horrible.
