Black Friday Shopping

Many like to go Black Friday shopping to get their holiday deals.

“Black Friday is a colloquial term for the Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States. It traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States. Many stores offer highly promoted sales at discounted prices and often open early, sometimes as early as midnight or even on Thanksgiving,” according to ¬†

“I usually go shopping at the Lynchburg Mall, Target, and Belk,” said sophomore, Caitlynn Hawkins. “When I go Black Friday shopping I look for Christmas gifts to give to others. Some tips I would give if you go Black Friday shopping is to definitely go early so you don’t have to be around a ton of people so you can get things you want before they are gone. One of the good deals I found this year during Black Friday shopping is a buy 3, get 3 free deal at Bath and Body Works.”

“I most of the time go to Greensboro, NC, to Black Friday shop because I love all of the stores they have down there, and they are all located close together which makes it easy to go to many different places,” said sophomore, Grace Stowe. “Dunham’s had a 50% off all Champion clothes and they had a great deal on tennis shoes as well! Another deal that I found there was 90% off all fall decor. During Black Friday I finished shopping for my family and friends gifts. Some tips I recommend to others when going Black Friday shopping is to get there early to avoid the bad traffic and take a break and eat lunch and snacks so that you don’t get worn out from all of the shopping. Also keep in mind to be patient if you have to wait in long lines because¬† employees are doing their best.”

“I go to the Lynchburg Mall to Black Friday shop because there are a ton of good stores there,” said sophomore, Mary Ross. “Belk, American Eagle, and Target normally have some pretty good deals and are good places to shop at on Black Friday. A good deal that I found during Black Friday shopping was 30% off everything plus additional deals in certain sections. I would totally recommend to know when places open and see if you can find out types of deal they’ll have a few days before so you will be prepared ahead of time.”
