WILLISTON – Last-minute shoppers across the state are concerned about time, now that many Black Friday door-buster deals are coming to an end. The sales, many of which began the week before Thanksgiving, are slated to expire tomorrow at midnight.
“We’d love to keep the sales going,” said Best Buy manager Ferd Torgerson, “but tomorrow is Christmas Eve, and we feel that many customers will have finished their Christmas shopping by the 25th.” Best Buy has been running a “20 Days of Doorbusters” promotion for the past 37 days, but plans on ending their Black Friday deals tomorrow.
“The thing about Black Friday,” said a shift manager at Toys “R” Us, “is that it’s a day for everyone to come together and show their inexpensive love for one another, and we think it shouldn’t be limited to just one day. We think it should be limited to days when we think people might buy stuff.”
When asked if some of the imperative urgency of the day itself has been lost, now that many of the exclusive deals are available online and for an extended time, a representative from Amazon responded, “I’m glad you pointed out that many deals are available online. Please visit amazon.com for Black Friday deals every day of the week.”
