With the National Retail Federation projecting consumers will spend nearly 4% more this season, retailers want their piece of the pie. Stores like Walmart, Target and Kohl’s will open their doors at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving, eagerly welcoming a traditional holiday shopping season that is a full week shorter than last year.
For a Starbucks gift card sure to provide the energy needed to pursue “doorbusters” after dinner, tell us in six words why you plan to run wild with retail on Black Friday or why you’d rather steer clear of the madness. Maybe:
- Only day I find salad shooter.
- Best day of year for movie.
- I love discounts. And long lines.
Put your six-words of Black Friday rationale in the comments. We’ll announce a winner next week.
And congrats to last week’s winner, James Vair.
