Should Black Friday end?

Posted: Updated:

The shopping frenzy that started with Black Friday is expected to trickle into Cyber Monday, as online retailers offer savings as significant as those offered at store locations.

The convenience and relative ease of online shopping has many wondering if the bustle, crowds, early shopping hours and, in some cases, pandemonium and chaos of shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving is no longer needed.

During this Black Friday alone, videos have gone viral depicting people who have been injured at the hands of other shoppers or authorities. Some of those incidents, according to those people affected, weren't exactly warranted.

In turn, Cyber Monday has been seen as a worthy alternative to make those holiday purchases, all at once, in the safety of your own home or work computer.

Do you think Black Friday should be done away with? Or should it stay in place due to custom, tradition and/or economic-boosting?

We want to hear what you're saying about holiday shopping. Make your comments to The Rant page on or on The Rant Facebook page.
