Stores Hope To Lure You With Black Friday Deals

Posted: Updated:
Love it or not, Black Friday is approaching, and if you want to get a jump start, there are dozens of ads that have been posted online, including at Best Buy, where they've got deep discounts on just about everything. Retailers are hoping these holiday bargains will be enough to entice shoppers to go out and spend.\r\n\r\nFrom blenders and sweaters to iPods and laptops, Black Friday bargains always promise to kick off the holiday shopping season bigger and better every year.\r\n\r\nBut given the nation's economic crisis, News 8 Financial Advisor Brent Wilsey says retailers are concerned shoppers won't be full of Christmas cheer, so they're offering some of the deepest discounts ever seen in order to get them to buy.\r\n\r\nIf you're in the market for a 5-piece luggage set, you can score a regularly priced $300 gift at Macy's for a mere $50. \r\n\r\nSports Authority is also trying to lure early bird shoppers. Doors open at 5 a.m., and the first 100 people through the door are going to be given gift cards ranging in price between $10 and $300, and they're good for anything inside the store.\r\n\r\nA $99 Guitar Hero game is listed for $59 at Target, and DVDs will run you between $4 and $6 apiece. At Garmin, GPS devices and Apple iPods are on sale for $149 at Circuit City. At Old Navy, you can't beat $5 t-shirts and $8 jeans.\r\n\r\n"There are going to be some great deals out there that people aren't going to be able to pass up on," Wilsey said.\r\n\r\nWal-Mart is another retailer trying to draw in big crowds for Black Friday. They promise to match any competitor's advertised price. All you have to do is bring in the ad to show them when you shop.\r\n
