Black Friday Shopping Update
Posted By Barry Ritholtz On November 27, 2009 @ 9:22 pm In Consumer Spending | Comments Disabled
We mostly steered clear of shopping today — went instead to the Chicago Art Institute’s new Modern Wing .
In the AM, the girls did go to Nordstrom ‘s for shoes — the parking lot was pretty filled, but the store was not exactly jammed. (Like Bloomingdales , I will admit that you can while away lots of time surrounded by pretty young things trying on shoes).
Golf Universe  was empty.
We also hit the Land’s End  Inlet (outlet, get it?) — back when it was a catalog online retailer only, it used to be a unique kind of store. Since Sears took them over, its no longer what it was. It was busy, but not crazy.
What was your retail experience like?
