Black Friday campout for electronic price cuts

At an electronic store in Dallas County, Texas, United States of America – USA, people started to campout in front of the electronic store three or four days in advance of the Black Friday sales. One person would have been there for four days.

For argument purposes that would be about 96 hours. 96 hours at about $10.00 an hour amounts to $960.00. Is that person going to purchase items equaling or exceeding the $960.00?

Black Friday the day after Thanksgiving is a day when many stores throughout the USA hold big sales slashing prices to start the Christmas shopping season. It is called “Black Friday,” because it is anticipated the sales starting that Friday will put the merchant’s balance sheet from a negative “red” to a positive (profit) “black.”
