Carlmont students shop on Black Friday

Last Friday, many stores around the United States were open for Black Friday. After consuming massive amounts of turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie, Carlmont students headed to local shopping areas in the spirit of Black Friday.

Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and the local shopping malls were loaded with shoppers and very low prices. Some shoppers waited until the morning to shop while others stayed in lines on Thanksgiving Day until midnight to shop.

Tim Layten, along with his family, waited in a long line until midnight to shop.

“Me and my family waited in line for hours,” said Layten. “It was totally worth it because I bought a lot of cool things for a low price.”

Forbes Jones also enjoyed his time at the mall when he was among shoppers on Black Friday.

“I got a sound system for my room for a fifty dollar discount.It was a really sweet deal,” Jones exclaimed.

While the stores were overflowing with shoppers, many Carlmont Students also decided to stay home.

Sean Murphy was one of those people who decided to stay home on Black Friday, said, “I didn’t participate on Black Friday. All I did was sleep in and watch the football game with my dad.”

Kainoa Cachia was also a non-participant on Black Friday, “I didn’t buy anything. I just decided to stay home and sleep.”

Whether it was buying Christmas gifts for family and friends, or buying supplies for their own personal pleasure, Carlmont students enjoyed the spirit of Black Friday.
