Today was Black Friday and many stores were open very early with special sales. Some even as early as 4 o’clock!

Roads around big malls like Woodfield and Gurnee Mills were already jammed. Some Best Buy’s in the Chicagoland area had people camping out in front of their doors from 3pm in the afternoon the day before!

So people want to be the first in and grab these things. More »
