The next morning is also equally commemorative since that is the time when family members and loved ones come together and go shopping for an early Christmas bonus!The Black Friday event has been an annual success for both shop owners and buyers. The former will list discounted items so that they could clear up their inventory and make some profits from it. On the other hand, the buyers are looking for quality and yet inexpensive items they can buy as a Christmas gift for others or themselves!As a result, more and more retail outlets are joining this shopping event bandwagon thinking that they too can take a piece of the pie. Among the most popular stores, Macy’s has been near and dear to the heart of millions of Americans. The store was founded in 1858 and became one of the most popular retailer in the US. It’s main line of business focuses on branded clothes, home essentials and accessories. They have over one thousand retail stores and considered to be the largest department store in the world. When it comes to jewelries, dining set, kitchen tools, perfume, men and women’s clothing line and children’s accessories you cannot go wrong with Macy’s.And for Macy’s Black Friday 2010 offering, it has revealed in its ads that it will be opened for business at 4AM to 1PM on Friday and 8AM to 1PM on Saturday. I guess, you have more time to contemplate and decide which item to choose, right? Expect as much as 30% discount on kitchen tools like blenders, rice cookers, waffle makers, coffee maker, toaster, food processor etc. Luggage bags like Samsonite will be also given with a significant price cut as well as bedding, bath towels, comforter sets and pillows. Also, for men and women who are fond of getting jewelries, then Macy’s has the answer.

You can save time (and money) in doing so plus, you can go and visit other stores to purchase more good deals.
One of the most interesting and exciting holiday shopping of the year belongs to Black Friday sales event. Several store outlets will open before the sun rises to offer several discounted items such as laptops, mobile phones, HDTVs, clothing, jewelries and many more.Among the most popular store gadget fans should look at is Best Buy station. Perhaps, the store has at least 1 near your neighborhood so there’s no chance that you’ll miss it! For the Best Buy Black Friday 2010 event, the shop is expected to offer gadgets and electronic products such as tablet PCs and ginormous HDTVs from popular brands like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and LG. For smartphone brands, expect to see HTC, Samsung, BlackBerry and T-Mobile line-ups.For wise shoppers, this is the time of the year to spend and get the latest gadgetry. You could, of course, buy after the product’s latest release but in my opinion that would be impractical to say the least. With Black Friday sales, you can maximize the value of your money – which is good considering that our economy is not on its tip-top shape this year.One of the trends in our day and age are tablet PCs. Perhaps you are very familiar with Apple’s iPad as well as the craze that went on for months because of this device. Well, it only made Steve Jobs and Apple several billion dollars richer than the rest of us. Now, there are gadget manufacturers who want to take a piece of Apple’s profit by creating their own tablet device. And one of the most popular is the Samsung Galaxy Tab.The good news is that the Galaxy Tab is rumored to be going on sale at Best Buy come Black Friday of this year at a very competitive price (compared with the iPad). There are 2 versions of it – the Wi-fi and the 3G model with a month-to-month contract plan with Verizon. This Android-powered device will surely be a hit among individuals who are looking for a good iPad alternative (both price and performance point of view). The iPad may look superior because of its status but as you know there is a lot of room for improvements which other tablet creations can take advantage.So, if you are itching to go and buy a new HDTV, smartphone or a slate device right now I advise you to be patient, save your money and wait a little while. For sure, more deals and offerings will be revealed in the coming days as we approach the big shopping spree.
