Black Friday 2008 or Discount Friday 2008?

Mashed potatos+Turkey = Incomplete Black Friday. So, what more do you need to add in the equation? Yes, Black Friday, the official day to kick start holiday shopping. Over the years, Black Friday has achieved special status among shoppers for getting deep discounts and door buster deals. This year, the retailers are giving more discounts and door buster deals to attract more shoppers. The economic crisis, fuel price rise have made shoppers reconsider and reorganize their shopping plans. Retailers are afraid of poor sales. Los Angeles Times:

This year, however, fewer consumers are in the mood to shop and retailers have been slashing prices for weeks in the hopes of boosting sales. This month alone, luxury retailers Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue have held massive sales, with many items 40% to 70% off, while discounters such as Kmart have offered "early Black Friday" specials on toys and other merchandise.

 side from discounts, retailers are going for early openings; as early as midnight. Walt Disney, KB Toys will open up their stores at 12 a.m. Along with door buster deals, discounts, shoppers will also get perks such as free parking. If you are one of those shoppers who enjoy shopping in stores then Black Friday 2008 is your best time. Wish you all good luck in DEAL HUNTING!
