I'd like to see everyone have Thanksgiving off, first of all.

As for advertised specials, I'd take the old man approach: I want useful items cheap. Don't need big TVs, computers or video games. I need things like small appliances, pots and pans, etc -- practical stuff! (Not going happen)

MP3s and/or cell phones, clothes. - Gonna try to keep it on the simpler/cheaper side this year, and I'm actually still deciding whether or not I want to venture out this year. I like helping to boost the economy, but as I get older, I've realized that I'm not a fan of the sore feet and bruised wallet.

People to use their heads and be SAFE!

Later opening times!

I've been working on Black Friday for years and last year was the first time I worked it and didn't feel safe. If there was a fire or emergency most people would not have been able to get out safely. I have never seen so many people crammed into a store before.

The Black Friday trend is slowly creeping in where I live. I noticed a couple shops doing it last year. It isn't very well known here yet.

So for me I would very much like to see an increase in the trend here. I would love more shops to get involved and offer genuine money saving deals on popular gifts and seasonal items. Fingers crossed it takes off.

I stopped going out to the stores myself for Black Friday, (It is too hectic, too many people and too much nastiness). Now adays, I do alot of my Black Friday shopping from the comfort of my lazyBoy while sitting in front of the fireplace....

I too prefer the Early Friday morning opening time like 5 am. We host Thanksgiving so I am not about to abandon my guests or rush them out early to go shopping. I enjoy spending Thanksgiving at home with my family.

We are still working on the gift list and I am hoping to have a lot of my shopping done before black friday so I am not sure what I will still need to get by then.

It takes a killer value to get us shopping on Black Friday. Decorating the homestead is much better.

This year I have DVDs, clothes, household items like towels, dishes, pots/pans, sheets, kindle fire hd, x box 360. It is tradition for my mom and I to go out shopping on BF. We do not go out earlier then 5 AM on BF. We don't usually need hot items and have been able to get everything on our list going out at that time.
