Do you Black Friday shop? In a recent poll, 51 percent of Clear Springs students said they prefer online shopping to in-person shopping for Black Friday. Some People don’t always know what deals are happening, what stores are participating, and when they should start shopping on Black Friday, so here are some things to know. 

Black Friday is the one night a year where all stores around the country put their items on a huge sale, and some people start shopping at midnight for the sales. Others would rather purchase their things online and stay inside, instead of going out in the crowd. 

Black Friday started in the US and is now being done in others countries. They call it “Black Friday”, because it was used to describe the traffic that would load the city streets at night the day after Thanksgiving as all the shoppers were heading to the stores. Black Friday starts on November 26, 2021.

For some it’s a lifelong family tradition and fun with the family. A lot of big box stores and stores in the mall open Thursday evening so shoppers can get started early. “You can get the better on Thursday,” Savannah Goalwin (11) said.

If you are worried about going out on this day, because of all the people, don’t worry, because you can shop online! A good time to start your shopping is on Thursday during the day. It will give you time to shop around and put things into your cart, then once midnight strikes 12:00am, you can check out, and your chances of getting the items you want without them running out of stock can be very highAll stores anywhere participate in the tradition of Black Friday. Black Friday discounts are anywhere and everywhere, so go out or get cozy in your bed with your laptop and get ready for the best deals to come!
