brigid_fitch: For the past several years, I have gone to my local mall, ordered a chai at Starbucks, and sat in the concourse to watch the insanity. So, yeah--I can totally agree. On Black Friday, only Starbucks & restaurants get my money because I've already ordered everything I want/need online.
Smeggy Smurf: sendtodave: Makes sense. You can't go to a restaurant on Amazon.Why is Black Friday still a thing?Heck, why are brick and mortar stores still a thing?For the excellent, personal service you get at Walmart, Best Buy, et al?Because people and businesses need shiat right now, not next week. It's a work thing, not many on Fark would understand that. stupid people can't plan ahead
