Latinos and the "black Friday"

The popular "black Friday" in the United States is approaching and what Latino families live in different ways, some with great enthusiasm and some with little or no interest.

On Black Friday, originally named because it is the day when retailers drop the red of their books and start writing their accounts in black ink, and is an inescapable tradition in the country. And while some stores with discounts start a few weeks earlier that day discounts are perhaps the most important of the year.

Although according to some economic studies, the most important of the year discounts are not given on this day, but on other days prior to Christmas, said a study by "The Wall Street Journal".

Consider the case of two Latinos and their particular way of seeing this day. For this woman from Peru Carina Lazo, Black Friday does not exist on your calendar. "Not interested", said Saturday 17 to El Tiempo Latino. "I never expected this day to go shopping, nor enticing me with offers I could find." Lazo prefer the tranquility and the possibility of making a more thoughtful selection.

But not all is the same case, there are those who plan to shop with one month's notice, to take home the best you can get and the best prices.

This is the case of the Chilean Rodrigo Riquelme, one of the ardent supporters of Black Friday. "It is a day that is known for sure that the prices will be lower than at other times of the year," he told El Tiempo Latino on Saturday, 17 while buying shoes for her one year at a store in Leesburg, Virginia.

So as we see there are various opinions as to this day, but what is certain is that there will be long lines at all stores with people looking for economy and quality.
