It’s that time of year again! Determined women (and some men) everywhere will don their most comfortable shoes and head out of their houses this evening or early in the morning to take advantage of the Black Friday sales.
While I believe the tradition is fun, especially if you include people who you enjoy spending time with, I am not a fan of the crowds or the standing in line for tickets to get items. Most of my items will be purchased online this year but I will accompany my friends nonetheless for tradition’s sake. Who knows, maybe I’ll score one of the 10 $200 42 inch TV’s or some $12 Aeropostale hoodies for the kids.
If you too will be venturing out into the night in search of deals of your own, I have compiled a list of local deals that could be useful on your endeavor.
Here’s hoping this will help guide you to the best deals in Orland Park:
