Black Friday COVID Version

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and we all know what that means… Black Friday. Black Friday is the biggest and busiest shopping day of the year. so one could imagine how different it might be this year due to the coronavirus. Like almost all things in 2020 there are going to be some changes.

Black Friday lands on November 27th this year. However many stores are starting Black Friday deals early. You may have caught on if you’ve been paying attention to your go to stores. If you haven’t though, your answer is probably just a phone call away. Calling and asking what the stores plan is for this year is a great way to make sure you are prepared if you plan on going out. If they are going to be open keep in mind it still won’t be the same.

It cannot be the same with the virus going around. There will be no big crowds of people, or stores filled to the max. Stores will be taking all safety precautions to make sure we all are staying safe. Some things you will see is limiting the number of people around and in the store, mandatory mask wearing, and lots of cleaning or sanitizer dispensers. This will help while still trying to enjoy the holiday season. 

Although we know lots will want to go in store, remember cyber Monday and other online deals are still available. Online shopping has always been big. Shoppers have always loved the idea of it. So might as well use it to our benefit while covid-19 is around. 

All in all we know it is never what is hoped for but everyone involved with Black Friday seems to be putting their best foot forward in hopes to keep the spirits up this holiday season.
