I of course did not go, but I did have friends and family in CA whom had a wonderful experience. They were able to purchase 3/4 of their list compared to last year with barely 1/2.
These were not great big items, but a few electronics and small appliances but were super excited that they did not have to fight crowds this year. They said it was pretty busy, but not shoulder to shoulder and pushing and shoving.
Makes me want to go out and experience Black Friday again LOL
