Assignment: Black Friday shopping frenzy
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created November 25, 2009 by
The day after Thanksgiving is a huge shopping day, so much so that retailers stake huge portions of their annual sales on this single day.
Shoppers, too, are quick to hit the malls in search of a bargain. Are you planning to brave the Great Indoors for Black Friday? Or, do you think this is crass consumerism gone haywire?
Put yourself on camera and describe how you feel about Black Friday, and take pictures of the lines of people camped out for the best deals. Give us a window onto this annual ritual.
Update: Thanks to everyone who shared Black Friday stories. This assignment is now closed. If you haven't already, check out our blog post showcasing some of the best submissions
