Consumers gear up for Black Friday weekend

The holiday shopping season officially kicks off with Black Friday this week. The day after Thanksgiving is always a busy day at malls and stores everywhere, and this year promises to be the same.

According to a recent report released by the National Retail Federation (NRF), as many as 147 million individuals are planning to shop on Black Friday as well as the Saturday and Sunday after it. They'll monitor advertising circulars, TV ads, the internet and their email accounts for information on sales before heading out to the stores.

Several retailers will even get an early start to the Black Friday shopping madness by opening on Thanksgiving for business. NBC News reports that Target stores will open at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving and Toys R Us will open at 8 p.m.

"Already there is a tremendous amount of excitement and anticipation surrounding retailers' Thanksgiving and Black Friday promotions," said NRF President Matthew Shay. "It's critical for retail companies to constantly evolve as consumers do, and right now shoppers want great deals, good value and convenience - exactly what we're seeing with this season's late and early openings, price-matching, layaway and mobile offerings."

While many will give up time with their families on Thanksgiving or wake up early to take advantage of early bird specials on Black Friday, fashionistas can rest assured that they'll be able to get a great deal by shopping for used name brand clothing at their local Plato's Closet store all season long.

Style Can Take You Places

Style can take you places. Style is not about a look or a fashion, it's about how you carry yourself in the world. It is your personality showcased where people can see it, feel it, enjoy it, understand it. My style took me around the beautiful New York City and the exquisite Red Rock Canyon in Nevada. I hiked along the big boulders and squinted in the sun. I took photos, danced, and froze my booty off on the High Line. Where does your style take you?
