Looking back to Black Friday

Posted at 10:14 AM on December 1, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Was Black Friday 2008 a success? An economic indicator? Instead of looking forward at December 2008, let's pause and glance back to November 28, 2008.

* MPR News: Black Friday shoppers still show, but some scale back While I didn't go shopping, during an errand run or two I saw plenty of people out and about with their cars jammed full of packages. Was that scaling back? If so, I'm in awe, or just perhaps struck.

* Meanwhile, the AP reports: Shoppers snap up Black Friday deals as stores hope Can you blame them for hoping?

* In our Minnesota Life group on Gather.com: Greg Schiller wonders, Can Men Equal Women at Shopping? Your comments are more than welcome, but I'm pleading the fifth on this one.
