The race is on to be first in line for this year’s best deals on holiday gifts: Black Friday is almost here. Every year, the stores open earlier in the wee hours of the morning, some even open at midnight after Thanksgiving Day, while other stores start the Black Friday sales on Turkey Day itself. If you’re going to get up that early (on a day off, no less), it is important to be prepared.
JC Penney took a different approach to Black Friday than other major retailers like Target, Wal-Mart and Toys ‘R’ Us, which opened Thanksgiving evening.

The day after Thanksgiving used to be a plumber’s dream because there were hundreds of people who found the scraps from holiday dinner creating an emergency for his family in the kitchen.
Even with stores like Wal-Mart and Target opening their doors on Thanksgiving, a lot of people still woke up early and stood in line on Black Friday.
Wal-Mart, Toys ‘R’ Us and Target stores in Dallas opened their doors to massive crowds Thanksgiving evening.
It’s been said that the early bird gets the worm—but, who cares about worms when retailers are offering great deals on electronics?
As you gear up for Black Friday, retailers are doing the same.

Toys, televisions, laptops — oh, my! The flurry of Black Friday ads are enough to make your head spin. What to buy? Where to shop? And when to get in line?
Black Friday is still more than three days away, but some people in west Dallas have already set up tents in front of a Best Buy store. The question is “why?”
Problems continue to mount for JCPenney. Large stock drops followed reports of a $123 million loss last quarter. And now, the company is making interesting moves regarding holiday sales.
