Today is Black Friday – when stores give some of the best deals for your Christmas shopping. Many stores opened early with sales last night and still others waited until the early hours today to bring out their specially marked merchandise. According to reports, you can get some great deals, today, but there is also cyber Monday coming up on the 26th for those of you who enjoy shopping online. Many people say they are well into completing their shopping chores, while others might even skip today’s and Monday’s sales and wait until closer to Christmas to get their bargains. Whichever way you choose, be safe out there on the roadways and also be aware of your surroundings as you move from the stores to your cars. Store your packages out of sight when loading up your car, and be sure to park in well-lighted areas.
