Every Thanksgiving people look forward to seeing family, giving thanks, and eating food. Another tradition shared by many on Thanksgiving is Black Friday shopping, where stores put unbeatable deals on their products.

Some families take Black Friday very seriously. On the news you can see people lined up at Walmart as early as 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving day!

Senior Maddy Johns spoke on her Black Friday experiences, “I usually start going shopping after Thanksgiving dinner around 6 or 8 o’clock.”

Gretchen Ripley, another senior at CHS said, “I went from 9 to 12 on Thanksgiving day, then went to sleep until 4 a.m. and didn’t stop shopping until 4 p.m. on Black Friday.”

Some stores are known for their Black Friday deals, such as Bath and Body Works, who offer a buy three get three free deal. Then there is JC Penny’s where they gave up to 70% off on clothing and other items.

Maura Kennedy, who went Black Friday shopping in Massachusetts, told us some of her favorite deals, “I thought that Kohl’s had some pretty good deals. I mean, you get a lot of Kohl’s cash. I got a nice blanket for $8.99.”

Ripley spoke on the deals given on Black Friday. She said, “Honestly there weren’t any good deals this year, but Abercrombie and Fitch.”

Every year you see hostile customers out to get the best deals. Since 2006 there has been 9 deaths from Black Friday shopping madness and 102 injuries. Shoppers can be very greedy when it comes to getting the best deals.

Johns spoke about her most memorable shopping moment from this year. She said, “I lost my wallet and got $175 stolen from it. I lost it in the bathroom and when I found it half of my money was gone.”

Kennedy said that the only out of the ordinary thing she witnessed on Black Friday was shoppers out at three in the morning.

This year statistics showed that people shopped online more than actually going out to the store because of all the chaotic people shopping. Cyber Monday broke records this year in regards of how much money was made.

According to inquistir.com, “Online sales added up to $3.34 billion, good for 21.6 percent growth on a year-over-year basis. Mobile sales took up one-third of that number, with a total of $1.2 billion in sales on Black Friday alone.”
