Protestors, heavily armored police and bargain-hungry shoppers: America prepares for Black Friday

Shoppers, protestors and police are gearing up for an expected bout of mayhem at the nation's malls and superstores Friday as the U.S. officially kicks off its holiday season with the biggest shopping day of the year.

Hundreds of people are already pitching camps outside of Walmarts, Best Buys and other superstores across America, hoping to catch the door-buster sales this Black Friday.

The National Retail Federation predicts 147 million Americans will shop this weekend and that there will be an increase in holiday sales of 4.1 per cent over last year...

In for the liveleak/youtube security cam videos of stampeding deaths and flying elbows!

This time of season makes WorldStarHipHop look as tame and civil as the old Davy and Goliath Sunday morning cartoons.

Went to the local Wally World to return a gift CCing, no issues, no one frisked me or took away my gun, it was crazy though watching them scramble around grabbing sale marked items as the store workers cut open the merchandise.

Meh. Swung by Walmart to check out sporting goods for a decent deal (like those Plano rifle cases from last year).

I was also looking for 3 things for my step-mother.

Found only one of the items, and only by virtue of luck, what with finding it discarded on the floor in the wrong section of the store.

You were an idiot if you used a cart. I went cartless and had 10X the mobility. Twas packed.

Actually checked out in under a minute. Checkout was really speedy. No Armageddon lines.

Sorry to disappoint. No real drama.

There were a bunch of hillbillies snatching up blue-ray players like mad to use on their tube TVs. made me lol.

Walmart can suck a bag of AIDS infected dicks!

I stopped in there for giggles because dad said they had some shotguns on sale. The place was fucking insane! I assumed it would be, but I was heading to sporting goods so I figured that would be okay. They had the entire department blocked off for room to line people up for electronics deals. They wouldn't even show me the gun cabinet or let me pick up ammo. I asked to speak to a manager and her explanation was that it is Thanksgiving and they don't sell guns or ammo on Thanksgiving. WTF? I told them they lost at least $400 in sales to me so they could take a loss on their cheap Chinese electronics.

Konger

I got sent to the back of the line at the store I WORK AT! I was just trying to buy some coffee and GTFO, but they had some planned layout (That I was not informed about prior) that forced people to go through every aisle of the store before they could check out. I am not happy.

I'll bet they were devasted at the loss of your business. Seriously, I agree with you though, and that's what I hate about Walmart. And Black Friday. And people.

I went by several stores to laugh at them standing in the rain like lemmings. Best Buy, no real line. Target, medium sized line probably less than 75 people. Walmart's parking lot was full, I wasn't even going to attempt to pull in and get a good look.

Just went to my Wal-Mart, pretty close to the ghetto. It was all organized and shit, had lines, not many kids running around surprisingly.

I just watched the news and they said there was a small uprising at a K Mart in Georgia
It was because the store employees handed out the sale item tickets to people that just showed up and bypassed the people that were in line for a day or two
Cops had to come and the people that got fucked complained the cops were to late to get them their tickets

I attended my first Black Friday event this year at Wal Mart in OKC. I arrived at 7:59 pm, and the parking lot was PACKED full!

I observed this brilliant parking job while looking for a spot.



I ended up parking far away, almost in the Sam's parking lot.

It really wasn't as bad as I imagined. They had all the TVs cordoned off with caution tape so lines could form, and they had balloons indicating where lines start and what the prices were. There were employees standing everywhere so you could ask where stuff was, and they would direct you.

There were deputies at the entrances and walking around the store.

Also, it was HOT. The place was PACKED



As a final note, I talked to a few people there and all were courteous. One lady offered to give me one of her items that I was looking for (she had 3).

Before 9pm, there were already fist fights at the local Walmart, lots of off-duty and on-duty PD there working.

One guy got booked for PI and Class A assault for punching a 16 year old girl in the face trying to get some bed sheets that were on sale.

I do not partake in such shenanigans. Furthermore, I cannot comprehend the mindset of anyone who does.


I would gladly pay more to avoid such a scene. And I am not a rich man.



True story.

Agreed. I was almost considering hitting dicks sporting good tomorrow ( 45 min away) To buy a shotgun they have on sale. Then I found out the difference is only somthing like $20 from their regular price.

Ill just wait a week and pay the $20 extra lol

I went to walmart to grab two video games i wanted, Get there, wait in line, giant line of people around the four corners of the area where the games where cordoned off inside of. Once 8pm hit they undid the ropes, and people rushed the game selection, while i had waited i had asked the people infront of me if they were to reach the display first, could they grab me a copy of the games i wanted, and they obliged. As the people rushed the display and almost knocked it over, it moved about 5 feet, i stood back and had the games handed too me, Than i just walked to the register.

Shit, I'm headed to tractor supply at 6am to get a gun safe on sale. I'm banking on tractor supply not being as busy as everyone else, but you never know around here. This is the first year I have ever partaken in Black Friday, other than to watch all of the idiots at Wal-Mart. It should save me $150, and I am in desperate need of a safe.

Mine was uneventful.


Went to Walmart, but waited til 12:30. The store was less busy than any normal shopping day. Parking lot was pretty much clear. I got first spot by the door ( all the loons had got their shit and left)

There was still a lot of sale items left. I casually strolled around the store. Bought some rubbermaid storage containers, cd's, belgium waffle maker, and slippers.

Then made my way to the Sears hometown store. It was now 3 (supposed to open at 4) and the parking lot was EMPTY I was worrying that they weren't opening up our small town store, but luckily some lights flicked on at 3:30 and saw some store employees inside the store. Sheeeww.

They unlocked the door at 3:55, I walked in, was the only customer in the store. Picked up my tool set, batteries and accerssory kit, and headed to the checkouts. When I left, I think there were 3 other customers in the store.

Pretty uneventful.
