Best Buy: Black Friday

Last year, a record 89 million Americans shopped online and in-store on Black Friday.

LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Last year, a record 89 million Americans shopped online and in-store on Black Friday. With more than 247 million Americans hitting retail chains last Black Friday weekend, the stress of the holiday season kicks off as stores gear up for another record year. Don't get flustered navigating the crowds and deals this season. Local Best Buy Blue Shirts are available to provide an exclusive first look at a selection of the Best Buy Black Friday deals, as well as shopping tips to conquer all your shopping this Black Friday. Best Buy is also offering your station two Black Friday-featured Insignia TVs as a giveaway for your viewers.

Best Buy suggest  survival tips for your black Friday shopping.
Plotting your shopping route early: Most retailers post their Black Friday ads online early, so you can browse door busters from the comfort of home and finalize your shopping list and destinations

Reading the fine print of door buster ads: Big door buster items will have limited quantities, so get in line early. Black Friday ads should indicate the minimum quantity guaranteed to be in stock. The best retailers to shop are those who pass out tickets, so people don't stress out once the doors open.

Download store apps: With tools like the Best Buy and other store apps, you can create a holiday wish list on your smart phone to share ahead of time with family and friends.

Bring Company: Wrangle a friend or make friends in line to allow for breaks while waiting. Bring snacks for sharing and be neighborly. This will help when negotiating line-holding strategies in the event that nature calls.

Getting Comfortable: Check the weather and make it fun. Bring a tent, chairs, sleeping bags and blankets. Hand and foot warmers may be a necessity to fight off the cold or in some cases, rain or snow. Bring along a favorite device or game to play with your newly found line friends.

Be Polite: Remember that being nice to your neighbors makes the wait more pleasant. Coordinate food, bathroom, and coffee runs with your line mates. Give them a heads up for the number of people you may be holding spots in line, and stay calm when the doors open.
