Black Friday madness: the top 3 stores to visit

By Linh Le, Staff Writer

With countless advertisements on the radio, television, and newspaper, it’s hard to know which store to shop at on Black Friday. It’s also difficult to choose a store that has the best sales such as who really means it when they say “up to 80% off” and items that are money’s-worth. Here are the top three stores to go to for good deals.

Wal-Mart, of course, has many locations across the nation and is well-known for cheap items. They have everything from clothes, cosmetics, electronics, kitchen appliances, etc. The items being sold at the store are already cheap, just think of the huge markdowns this Friday! Items are soon going to be sweeping off the shelves so it’s best to go here first.

Founded in 1858 in New York City, Macy’s is one of the world’s largest department store. Some of the items are very pricey, but are high quality. Macy’s usually has good sales on normal shopping days. You can buy many things here such as clothes to accessories to home appliances. There’s no doubt that there will be huge discounts in the store the day after Thanksgiving.

Last but not least, there’s Target. Opening as early as 8:00pm this Thanksgiving and at 12:01am on the website, Target is the go-to place to get cheap clothes and electronics. Selected sleepwear for men, women, and kids are going to be sold as low as $5! Also, you can get a 16 GB iPad Mini with Wi-Fi for just $299 plus a $75 Target gift card along with the purchase! If Wal-Mart is too far away where you live, a nearby Target is a great place to go shopping for good deals.

Other stores are going to have markdowns as well, but it’s best to keep these three stores in mind. On Black Friday, these places are the ones to get to before anyone else does.
