Christmas shopping spree starts on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving Day. I decided to look for some softwares and personal items this morning. I left home at near 7:00AM, 45F outdoor, a little bit chill but very comfortable weather with a jacket on. I went to 4 stores.
To my surprise, this store's parking lot was not full. I parked on the third row spot near the store front. Two police cars parked near entrance to the store. Once I came into the store, I saw law officers standing near exit door and about same numbers of customers and store workers. Checkout counters had no long line to wait, possibly due to internet selling/buying.
A lot of people were unemployed and cut back on spending this year. I pray that the world economy will recover soon and peace for all mankind. 聖誕拍𧷗購物潮開始於黑色星期五也就是感恩節後一天。我想去找一些軟體和私人用品。七點左右出發, 外面約華氏45度, 涼了些但穿著夾克覺得蠻舒服的。我去了四間商場。
當我來到這家購物場時,發現她的停車場空位很多。我車停在門前笫三位。兩部警車停在大門進口處。走進裡面, 看到警察站在出口附近, 顧客跟服務人員人數看似一樣多。付帳處無長龍等不久就可輪到結帳, 可能受到網路售購的影響。
不景氣加上裁員失業多, 今年很多人包括我都要節省開支。祈願世界經濟景氣早日復甦, 人人和平相處。
PS. I covered part of the store sign.
