Black Friday Deals


As this year continues to change in just about every way possible, Black Friday isn’t any exception. Immediately after Thanksgiving, people will crowd storefronts and malls waiting for a certain store to open, anxiously hoping the deals include certain items in time for giving Christmas gifts or on gifts for themselves.


However, as a result of the challenges retailers continue to face during the coronavirus pandemic, stores have set in place specific safety protocols including required facial coverings, social distancing, and a limited number of in-store shoppers. Shoppers are also encouraged to shop online in order to limit in-person interaction, and retailers up their game this year in order to attract customers with intriguing deals.
