I tweeted awhile back that The Grinch stole Black Friday this year. While some new deals have come in, there isn’t a huge point to camping out at any one store this year. Sure, if your HDTV just blew a (plasma) gasket, you may want to head out about now and set up base camp.
Otherwise, this year is an online-year. Why? Well, for starters, the retailers are moving away from sensational doorbusters that only the first 50 people get. Black Friday is evolving to a more general retail day. Also, the retailers are cash-strapped due to the ongoing recession.
That said, there are a few good deals at each store that might want to be worth your browsing, especially online!
