Black Friday Preview

CompUSA ventured into new territory this year, targeting bored consumers stir-crazy after a full day of eating and spending time with family by opening from 9-midnight on Thanksgiving.

It was a zoo.

We arrived at 9 p.m. and got in the back of a line I’d estimate to be in excess of 100 yards long, waiting in the cold for an hour and a half before being permitted inside.  Apparently, there was an issue of not exceeding the fire code by having too many people inside.

Some things were sold out, but the item we were there for (a 1GB memory module for hubby’s laptop) was in ample supply.  Oddly, I didn’t find anything else I simply had to have… so we came home having spent only what we intended to.

That’s a good sign.  If only we can maintain that discipline throughout the season.
