It’s All About the BUZZ
Did you go shopping yesterday and get caught up in the frenzy? Not me. Well, I did go by Lowe’s for some paint and wallpaper but that was long after the 6 a.m. rush, and while the store was busy, it was the normal “Saturday” do-it-yourself crowd and not the wide-eyed bargain seekers you see at department stores, Wal-Mart and Best Buy. Son Scott had to work at Kohl’s but not until 4:30 p.m. His friend had to be there at 4:30 a.m. I hope they were nice to you.
But around the country Americans jumped on the gotta have it now bandwagon like South Park’s Cartman on the Nintendo Wii. According to the Washington Post, “Retailers said they would not begin tallying the number of shoppers until today but that anecdotal reports indicated strong traffic.”
