Black Friday?

Posted: November 27th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Misc. | No Comments »

It’s no secret I’ve been in retail for my entire working life. After 15 years at the #1 revenue per square foot retailer (SALES per square foot? It’s one big sales number we’ve had over the Walton’s and I’m pretty sure we still have it…) I have to say- I am not, nor will I ever be, a Black Friday shopper. Day after Christmas is a different story.

This morning I really thought about staying until 5:00am when our doors opened but ducked out at 4:30am instead. I couldn’t even stay to watch the madness those first 5 minutes bring. Nope, I got my tail on the road. I even pumped myself up a second time and drove to the store I shop at, drove through the parking lot with 5 minutes to spare before the doors opened. Saw the super cute reusable bags being handed out and the line that was wrapped around the building…and turned myself around and went home.

I couldn’t bear to wait 5 minutes. There were people in line at my store at 10pm last night!


Good luck to all you shopping fools, I hope you find what you are looking for!
