It totally screws up my gimmick, but anything that means less work for me while simultaneously making the world slightly more civilized is fine by me. Black Friday shoppers hunt savings without the frenzy of past years
The real story here isn’t that 2016 is a down year for some reason, but that we’re finally starting to see the shift toward online shopping that’s been predicted for years now. Enough people are figuring out that it’s no longer necessary to go out and get a concussion and a computer that I feel like we might be ready to take Black Friday as we know it to live on a big farm with a nice family where it can run and play forever and ever. It won’t happen all at once, but change is coming, thank god.
