Love it or hate it, Black Friday is the super bowl of shopping.
And with its arrival only mere days away, Mansfield people are talking about the potential savings stores big and small have to offer.
Some people create their own Black Friday “game plans” on what stores to hit and when after they've poured over the announced bargains various retailers have to offer.
There are those so keen on saving they set alarms to wake them up in the wee hours of the night. These folks line up early and some even camp out all night to be able to scoop up the deals they’re after.
When asked on the Mansfield-Storrs Patch Facebook page wheher you'd be participating in the Black Friday madness, a couple Mansfield resident chimed in and neither said that the deals were worth the stress. One added that on principal he won't shop at a store that makes employees report to work at midnight just for the sake of the "almighty dollar."
If you are headed out to brave the crowds, consider these local businesses that are running their own Black Friday specials:
CrossFit Storrs - Half off the first month of membership when signing up for on ramps (introductory classes to the fundamental moves of crossfit). Class schedules and pricing info are available on the CrossFit Storrs website.
