Last year I went out on Black Friday and had a great time. The people were mostly good natured, and happy to chat. I got a large stuffed dog at one store and I enjoyed the strange looks I got with him hanging out of my cart. Maybe they thought I brought my dog with me? Anyway, I do a mix of in store and online. JC Penney had great deals on their boots for Black Friday last year. I don't have any malls nearby, it's at least a 45 minute drive to the nearest one. I miss that because stores don't decorate much anymore. I miss the music and decorations that the malls had.
