The bad economy didn't put a dent on consumer buying habits this year, expect an equal number of shoppers heading to the stores this "black" Friday and oh, ho ho, it seems like the month of "Christmas" already started: a month and 6 days left until the big "X" -mas is here. My wife is seeking a return to her previous employer Target whom were good to her or Stein Mart, another good store in my area...I'm focused on the day before Thanksgiving as a "rush" in my grocery store I work for (gonna get bus-seh!).
If your an Aussie and in particular from VIC " Black Friday " has a totally different meaning , Its a name given to a Friday a few years ago , we had a massive bushfire & many people ( including some I knew ) lost their lives ....
Sorry it's not on topic but I saw the heading & thought it might have had something to do with the fires
