All I have to say is, thank god I don’t have to participate in Black Friday anymore whether it is as a shopper or as a salesperson working in retail. There used to be this sort of allure around Black Friday that kind of intrigued me and I can only remember it for one year. It was the night after Thanksgiving and my local mall was having this thing where they opened early and there was a performance and I was meeting up with my best friend and I was eating it all up. I don’t think it is like that at all anymore and this photo proves just how chaotic the whole event can be. This photo was taken at a Nike outlet in Seattle on Black Friday and it looks like the customers just came in and destroyed the place. How is this going to be a fun shopping environment for anyone? It’s one of the reasons why I can’t be bothered with shopping at outlets or thrifting anymore because it’s the sifting part that gives me such anxiety. Ain’t nobody got the patience for that – at least I don’t. -_-
Here’s hoping that all of you can stay safe and shop online (hello Cyber Monday!) or hopefully today you shopped for Small Business Saturday!
