Ready for the rush
Area merchants are gearing up — the countdown to Black Friday is on.
Thousands of area shoppers are expected to join millions nationwide on Friday descending on stores before dawn to take advantage of some of the best deals of the year.
The Black Friday promotional blitz — the traditional start of the holiday season — gets its name because it traditionally was the day when huge crowds would push stores into “the black” profit-wise.
Richie McKinney, owner of McKinney Honda, said he expects a big day.
