The biggest shopping day of the year is just around the corner, and stores are already prepared for the big crowds.
Retailers like the Belk department store plan to have extra employees on hand, and even gift wrappers. Lots of stores will be open earlier than usual, and you expect to find a lot of sales, if you don't mind fighting the crowds.
Susan Coats, manager of the Belk store, said, "This is really the day that all the retailers roll out and give you the best buys. This is the weekend that overall you can get the best buys everywhere."
