Black Friday Shopping Takes Economy’s Temperature

Posted by Nancy on November 27, 2009

It looks like the economy has the flu.

When stores open at 4:00 a.m. on Black Friday and you don’t go shopping until after noon, and still find advertised Door Buster Specials waiting to be bought, you know this isn’t looking like a good year for retailers.

When you read about stores running specials on diapers and socks for Black Friday sales, you know this isn’t looking like a good year for retailers.

When it’s easy to find a parking space at your favorite outlet on Black Friday, you know this isn’t looking like a good year for retailers.

When today’s business news tells how real estate development in Dubai was built on an imploding land bubble and they are asking for a six-month moratorium on debt repayment, causing worldwide markets to quake, you know this isn’t looking like a good year for retailers.

When the President’s economic policies are all anti-recovery and anti-job creation, you know this isn’t looking like a good year for retailers.

In fact, it’s looking like this won’t be a good year for many of us.
