Re: walmart phone sale....are you kidding me?

Oh it's not just the WM employees, it's WM store managers too who also have no idea what is going on but have the discretion to take command of the situation in their individual stores. Unfortunately few of them do so which leads to the feral behavior of customers in WMs which makes for sexy TV on t...

Re: Unaccompanied teens banned from Black Friday!

A friend of mine who used to work at Bath & Body Works (she quit B&BW when she got a better offer i.e. more hours at a higher hourly rate at a non-chain retail store) said that the big reason why B&BW sales people are so in your face friendly is to deter shoplifters, many of whom unfortu...

Re: Loyalty to BFads.net.

The other site options offered in the polls to me are not = in purpose to BFads.net BFads is for the holiday season while SD etc are older daily deal sites (Groupon etc are version 2.0 of SD etc) So I use them all but I'm only around here, well, in season. That said BFads excels at intel on holiday ...

Re: Earlier next year?

The news this morning said sales were up 20% from last year. Last year they were up from the year prior. Sales keep going up and more people keep going out for BF on Thursday night. As much as some may not like it, early BF sales are here to stay. Nightly Business Report (a half hour business show ...

Re: Happy suprises? Any regrets?

I didn't have any money to shop this year and kind of bummed about it, I decided to go to walmart yesterday to walk around and get out of the house. I was in the toy isle looking at some toys and I saw a 6 piece princess barbie doll set for $19.97. I really wanted to get this for my daughter and I ...

Re: Is BF really pure chaos?

I think it depends on the store and the rules they are applying WalMarts near me are terrible (fist fight in one of them near me this Thanksgiving over $20 sheet sets, cops had to be called, etc). But other places the WM Follies are well-run. WMs are totally random in how they do things (as are my n...

Re: Black Friday Movie in the Making.

You could pitch it as a reality show pilot...although I was being snarky when I suggested this idea in another thread.

Good luck with your ventures into media.

Re: Earlier next year?

Personally it doesn't matter to me because I don't have much in the way of family geographically close to me (a father with Alzheimers is pretty much it, the extended family is too lazy to come here and it's too hard on Dad to go elsewhere). But I also do the most shopping for gifts (holiday or othe...

Re: Is there a Reason to go out Black Friday Shopping Anymor

I of course am being completely sarcastic but this is the general sad direction I see our society going in. If the people on cable will make shows out of allegedly Amish teens & 20-somethings out on 'rumspringa' (aka their running around period before they decide whether to join their church) an...

Re: Is there a Reason to go out Black Friday Shopping Anymor

2 words: People watching. How about 2 other words: webcam feed Seriously one of the cheap ass cable networks could get a reality show if they just tapped into the store security cameras and followed around the lines and the shopping. Offer the shoppers their stuff at a big discount (or free) if the...

Re: NOT ON THANKSGIVING

I'm surprised no one has brought up how Tower Records used to be open on Christmas Day for shopping or about Christmas Day movie openings the way people seem to be shocked/upset about Thanksgiving Day sales (including at grocery stores which stay open until the early afternoon) which have gone on fo...

Re: -=-=-=SHARE YOUR BF 2012 EXPERIENCE! - OPEN=-=-=-

So I posted about being dragged out later on BF by my father elsewhere here (he is in the early stages of Alzheimers and BF is really no place for someone who is cognitively impaired, especially not the early birding and camping out on lines for days on end), but I agree with BFVet that I didn't see...

Re: Target Holiday Price Match policy is posted

I tried prebuying a portable DVD player that was going to go on sale in a Target BF 2008 sale the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and was told that not only would they not price adjust, in order to return & rebuy it at the BF price, the player would have to be reshelved and I would have to go back...
