Forget about traffic and lines! It’s going to be busy no matter where you go, so make sure you know where you’re headed and what you need when you get there!
If you’re looking for a game console or holiday bundle, call the store ahead to make sure. Gamestop has a program where, via Gamestop.com, you can place a hold on an item until you get there, thus eliminating the possibility of wasting a trip! Wal-Mart also has a pick-up in store option, but not available for the same-day.
Wal-Mart has the widest array of products for any holiday shopper and generally they offer incentives in the form of gift cards for video game shoppers making console purchases or buying select hot titles. The Wal-Mart website usually has a list of these deals and when they expire.
Don’t forget! When planning your route, remember that many Black Friday deals end at certain times of the day to get you in the store early as possible!
Best Buy and Gamestop each offer a Black Friday-only circular for their video game deals. Both retailers get very aggressive with making sales that whole weekend, but offer the deepest discount for early morning shoppers on Black Friday and Saturday morning early-risers.
The best part about shopping in Charleston is that there are ten Gamestops, five Wal-Marts and four Best Buys in the immediate area so you won’t have to drive too far to find what you need. At the bottom I’ve included the “store locator” links to the stores and a Black Friday-only website to keep you informed on all the biggest deals!
Do yourself a favor and check out this one!
Best of luck in your shopping!
