Re: Stores were Dee-E-Dee Dead! during traditional BF hours

I heard a different WM about 10 minutes away had EVERYTHING left because they had a sewage backup incident and everyone kept walking in and instantly leaving it was so bad.[/quote]

I wish that was my Walmart! i do not have a sense of smell and I would have cleaned up!

Best Buy tried to restrict sales to one per family.

Here it is 2014, and still the problems with Managers and staff who try to circumvent the corporate policy of one ticket per customer. The lesson learned is that you must always try to reach out to the manager first if they are new. This particular manager came from the Brunswick Georgia store and o...

Re: Fluff news stores that don't understand Black Friday

Great opening statement! None of those stores will ever lose a penny since they are an afterthought in the mind of an already tired and ready to go home Black Friday shopper. Having just enough stores open on Friday should help the traditional shopper, but until Walmart decides to change their ways,...

Re: The ads so far are AWFUL this year.

G, you, of all people, should have more faith than that. Black Friday is just evolving, it's not dying. Amen brother! After reading some of the early comments one has to wonder why they are even here. I hear so much negative crap on Slick deals and it usually revolves around the "I can get it ...

Re: why line up early at best buy?

These particular ladies are part of a 10 person group. They trade out with other members and since their husbands are the breadwinners, they naturally get the daytime shift. This is their 6th year overall. Some locations are highly competitive. It is a never-ending game of one-upmanship. California ...

Re: Face it, Black Friday is Dead!

If people were worried about missing the sales then they would have come out in the middle of the night or early friday morning. So seeing as how sales have increased with the earlier sale times, it's likely not for that reason. Earlier times allow for MORE people to come out. A lot more people hav...

The good old days... Opened at 6:00am on Friday.

Was this your ad? It brought back some good memories, then i saw the sweet tracks freebie near the back of the ad. I had to go find mine, still perfectly preserved in the tin from 2004!

Re: Best Buy

The TV offerings are extremely underwhelming. Where in the heck did they dig up all of those 60hz models? Even for the 4K version?
On a positive note, there are some solid deals everywhere in the ad once you take a longer look.

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

Correct! Last year it was so cold that the news reporter kept using a thermometer to show the television audience! He was betting that we would leave (naive as he was) when the temps got to 30 degrees. He and the cameraman ended up not tolerating the cold very much and started to shiver and shake. I...

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

I'm hearing you on the heat issue. That is why we upgraded! Even with the heater last year, it was unbearable for some due to the rain and cold here in North Florida.

Re: Birmingham, Alabama: Checking In

I have seen your new digs, and it sure beat out or new 8 man tent for this year! We have some alumni flying in this year, so it is going to be a great year for the Vacationers. Instead of shirts, the group is getting embroidered hats this year. Let's hear of your entertainment options for such a lar...

Re: Duplicate boards

So long as all of the old postings are moved to their respective years, then there should be no problem with deleting the 2014 subsection.

This should also correct all of the smarmy comments from people who notice responses to those older posts.
