Online>traffic,recklessness

the only thing that could make going in person beat online is if you want something instant or need to try it on/see before purchasing.

Also,malls are still packed,in my bumble fu*k city in Florida named Jacksonville you can still see hecka people at the mall(except regency )

The outlet mall near me was full Thursday night and Friday afternoon. Came back around 8 on Friday night and it wasn’t anywhere near as busy

Every bit of my Christmas shopping was done on my phone

Note: american corps forcing people to work too much resulted in regular Americans preferring to simply wait a day or 2 for shipment knowing they are usually at work...a 4 day work week would bring back brick and mortar

You can go to these stores for the next 2 weeks and still see all those budget TVs and crap lined up on the floor.

If the discount is available online, I’ll just order it there.

Im in LA sh*t was packed everywhere. But one thing I did notice all the black friday deals were just there. Retailers are just making it another shopping day, not like before.
That's cuz them paisas cant use the internet correctly.

Most deals could be had the weekend before BF online. I did all my shopping the weekend before and leading up to BF online. No real reason to hit up the stores other than to see the thick a*s girls working at my local target. Seriously the hiring manager gotta be black or Hispanic. Nothing but thick chicks wife be like let’s hit up target I be like I don’t want to but ok then lol.

Same. After cashback, rebates, Kohl’s cash, etc., I stocked up on enough wedding gifts, housewarming gift, etc. for the next decade, all to net out at around $0 out of pocket at the end of the day.

if I was in management in retail...like high level....I'd jump ship now and get my a*s in in management of online retail distribution or some sh*t. let the young bucks have the dying brick and mortar scraps.
That’s a good idea

Probably due to online sales and i think that was the point


Also they're right, the sales start way earlier, at least online

I went to two black friday sales, the first one I never even got out was like forget this, I went at six and it started at 6 smh lol. The second time was by mistake got out of work stopped at walmart and was like why is it so busy in here duh its black friday, didn't even realize it til i got into store. But most stores offer it online a few hours later, then there is cyber Monday, why bother with all that crazy stuff at the stores.

$20 per person per visit is a lot of money. I rarely spend any money when I go out unless I’m getting my monthly free truffle at Godiva, free triple espresso and Nespresso, freebies at Chick-Fil-A, or I found some slick 90% off deals.
How's the oilfield looking in Colorado?

I haven't worked since October. Just read that Halliburton laid off 800 people today in Oklahoma.
