Went to New Dimension Comics at PGH Mills at 12 AM, saved 33% off games and comics. Store was packed, very friendly. At at Sonic @ 2 AM, good food, polite servers on skates. Wal-mart was packed. Bought DVDs $1.96 each & Cat food. Saw people doing low level scams, clerks, denied the sale and moved on. Clearance area PC speakers for $5 and 6$ (bought one). Electronics are looked like a tornado with a pack of three year old kids had hit it. But the clerks and people working there were courteous, professional, and just great at that Wal-Mart PGH Mills. Drove south 28 past Aspinwall where there was a horriffic accident blocking the exits to and from the Highland Park Bridge. Maybe 3:or 4 AM. Had to be 2 fire and police departments already there, as we passed the north side of the bridge ramps. No one was allowed to use the bridge. Our guess was that it was a headon / wrong lane deal, likely people died. Got to Century III mall, and found some more deals at Bradley's books, a nice helpful woman there, I saved 50% off of retail price on some games and books (a game normally $30.00 was $12.98, etc.) and also bought some small model game pieces at Century III (lots of people there, food court was well populated) @ New Dimension comics with a bit of looking. It was surrreal to be at Century III so early. I recall when the place was built when I was about 13. Got home and it was near 6AM. Glad my wife and I and a friend all made it home. Those poor people in Aspinwall....

I prefer to wait until tomorrow. I worked in retail for years and know that you will not get the best service on Black Friday. I will shop during off peak hours and days. If you are able to pry yourself away from the TV during a Steeler game, it's a great time to hit the malls. (And you can keep track of the game on your smartphone!)

We went out around 8 AM today and we got everything we went for. We even found some things we weren't looking for! And the service we received was excellent!

Nice! I had some family members who were planning to go out on Thanksgiving night instead of on Black Friday. Hopefully they found some good deals, too.

Good stuff! I spent a relaxing Black Friday reading a book, haha. I am headed to see other family members this weekend, so perhaps I'll hit up some sales on the way. I do have to drive past a Target...
