    Does anybody know when they open on Black Friday? I see some stores are opening at midnight!! Do people actually go in the middle of the night?

    Thanks.

    I don't do Black Friday any more. I haven't for several years. I like to sleep in. Besides I have all the gifts for my Grandkids that I am going to get them and then my kids and their spouses I'm going to give money.

    i do! it's kind of a family tradition to sit down after dinner has been cleaned up and go through all of the ads and come up with a "plan" for the next morning.

    I don't push and shove, and last year, at sears, when the pushing and shoving started, i sorta hid in women's underwear until the madness died down. lost out on a couple of deals, and took me a while to find the bf again, but at least i wasn't hurt!

    =) It also helps to go in with a smile-ly, shiny attitude, it disarms those mean crazies.

    Where do I read about the different sales that start at different times? I've read the main sales, on bfads.net, but are there others? I'm ALL about the fleece sales!! :)

    They are having the Accuquilt GO! for $199 - but I believe the ad stated "fri, sat, & sun", so no need to rush in there early Friday morn. Of course, they will be sold out if you wait..... :thumbdown: Do they do rainchecks??

    The newest Joann's flyer states on the front page "All Day Doorbusters", but read the fine print. At the bottom of the Doorbuster pages it states "Doorbuster items limited to stock on hand. No special orders. No rainchecks." So if you want a doorbuster item you'd better get there at 6am. Last year I went at 8am and all the doorbusters that I wanted were sold out already.

    check with your Joann's to find out how many they have on hand...I'm still trying to talk myself into spending the money on one. I keep thinking of all the other things that money could be used for.

    I miss Joann's BF sale... Having said that - next year our new Joann's will be open and I'm sure I'll be there for it! They usually put on quite a sale!

    I am probably going to go to Hancock's Friday or Saturday.... That's the best we have here. Hobby Lobby never does anything out of the ordinary...
