The stores might offer deep discounts on Black Friday, but it's not worth but it's definitely not worth the unruly throngs of crazy people! And what about the parking... or lack thereof on that day! A nightmare for sure!

The parking's not a problem if you get there early... REALLY early. I might go if I see a really good deal on something I need, but as of now, I don't.
