One retailer is taking a stand against Black Friday! Find out WHY!


Black Friday is the biggest shopping event of the year. People line up as on Thanksgiving day (some even days earlier!) just to be the first to score a deal on a flatscreen TV or video game console. The shopper's mentality on this day can be a little ridiculous, and one retailer is trying to change things by proposing #optoutside instead. Outdoor gear retailer REI is encouraging folks to skip the Black Friday shopping frenzy and forgo lines and carts for the great outdoors instead. Their argument: spending time outside is a much better use of your time than sitting outside a storefront to save $15 off a blender you probably don't need.
