Black Friday - Quick Update

November 27, 2009 by Elizabeth Harvey

As I arrived early to work this morning, I had no idea what I was about witness -- hundreds of people were waiting outside Storyville's door - the majority of them overflowed onto Chimes Street.  It was an absolute crazy sight to see.  I obviously knew it was Black Friday , but knowing that we weren't Best Buy or Wal-Mart, I knew we wouldn't have to open at some ridiculous hour.  I was wrong.  One lady holding a thermos and a blanket in her hands pointed across the street where I saw a whole tent city .

I can't write long, because Lynn Austin can't keep up at the register by herself, but I was able to call Storyville New Orleans , and they said they're experiencing very similar situations.  They told me they have actually declared today "Black and Gold Friday" due to all the Saints t-shirts they're selling. It's madness!

I must go but, don't forget if you use "BLACKFRIDAY" on at checkout (today only), you'll receive 15% off your entire purchase!!
