Combat Shopping!  Will You Be Out & About?

Black Friday!

Black Friday is NOT for the faint hearted!  Black Friday has turned shopping into a sport, a marathon to be won at all costs.  The legendary Black Friday shoppers have it down to a science, preparing for days, searching for the bargains, reading newspaper ads, watching for the televised great deals and going on-line.  These shoppers have a goal and a plan.  These experienced Black Friday shoppers get out early, in the dark black of the night, often leaving their unsuspecting family at home sleeping.  It is rumored that these champion shoppers even camp out waiting in line to be at the first of the line when the store doors open.

Attention:  Rockwall County Residents, here's a Black Friday Tip for you!

Shop Local, Shop Rockwall County!

There are many independently owned business establishments in Rockwall and these folks provide the best of the best customer service.  Many have unique items that have been carefully selected for Black Friday.  Do you like the larger stores?  Well, there are plenty of those in Rockwall County too!

Get out & about and shop local!  Don't bother driving across the metroplex, shop local, then use the extra time to hang out in one of the many home owned dining establishments. 

Shop American Made!  Look for the "Made in the USA" tag!     Shop Rockwall County!

Barbara: This post makes perfect sense for everyone who will be shopping on Black Friday.  Shopping local and U.S. made is the way to go.

It's so funny listening to everyone gearing up for this "oh so special" day.  My daughter is in the restaurant business and they are gearing up as well.  I sit back and listen to everyone and think, not me, I'm sitting at home and reading a book!  lol....enjoy your day.

Anita - thanks!  I think shopping local makes a lot of sense and adds to our community spirit.  Shopping USA should be high on all our lists in these economic times.

Cindy - me too!  The last thing I want to do is get out in that crowd, but there are many that do it every year.  More power to them and good for them getting those good deals!

Very good advice for Black Friday shoppers.  All of us need to remember to support the local businesses.

Have an wonderful Thanksgiving and be sure to have your camera in hand to capture those special moments.
