It’s the crack of dawn. You’re awake and you’re ready.
You throw on some tennis shoes, grab your wallet, and you’re out the door. You rush to your favorite outlet mall, get out of your car, and grab a spot in a line so long, you can’t see the entrance. Two hours later, the doors open, and it’s go time.
You scan the room for the items you need. Today only, those items are the cheapest price you’ll find all year. The room is packed full, the temperature is rising, you are sweating, and it’s like human bumper cars with the shoppers surrounding you. You spot what you’re looking for, and dodge people from all directions, heading directly for that big screen TV that’s hundreds of dollars cheaper than it was yesterday.
Black Friday shopping is like an unofficial sport that requires dedication, motivation, perseverance, and patience. Also, if you’re claustrophobic, it’s likely you won’t survive.
Black Friday is not an official holiday, rather a tradition that’s one of the most major shopping days in the United States. The cheap prices on Black Friday are exciting. However, there are great dangers that come along with that many people in one place.
Insurance is typically your savior when bad things happen. However, depending on the circumstances, that is not always the case. Be as safe as you can to avoid these common insurance claims that occur on Black Friday each year.
Whatever you do, make sure you are being cautious when you go shopping this weekend, or anytime.
