Me neither!! I think I've narrowed it down to Sears, Mervyn's or Office Max. Do you know how busy Fred Meyer will be? I'm thinking of doing a quick dash because they're so close to home.

Actually, I don't. I know I was at one in Portland (82nd ave) about three years ago on BF.. I got there 45 min early and there was about 50 people in line already. Eeeks. There's a Freddies just up from me as well, I may go there first and then run like heck to Sears (another option, lol).

lol That's exactly what I had in mind... I'm trying to work out what the chances are that if I hit Freddies, I'll still be one of the first 200 at Sears.. probably not so good.

Ditto. I keep looking at the Sears and Freddies ads now, trying to figure out what is worth it. LOL.

I was at that exact same Best Buy 3 years ago.

Such a small world.

Did you know they tore down that 82nd Ave Cinemas and there is a new GI Joe's in it's place?

Yes, I wasn't happy. Even though that theatre wasn't my fave, I was surprised to see it go for some reason. And the one in Clackamas Town Center is gone as well. :rolleyes: Oh well.. more stores to shop at (kidding).

Nope, I haven't. We usually go to Century 16 Eastport off of 82nd ave. :)

I've seen the TV ads for Fred Meyer's and they're offering free refreshments. Plus Target is advertising various wake up calls...funny idea but I guess good for those who may wanna use that. :)

That's still a nice theater. There are so many movies out that I want to see. Next on the list is probably Incredibles.

If I ever get out to the movies again, that'll be the day, lol. Thanks MrsH! I am thinking Freddies is my first stop this morning, then Office Max..

Oooh, free refreshments! I love Freddies. Sounds silly, but we go there so often that I almost want to avoid it on BF. I'd rather go places I've never been before and bask in the insanity :D

Now, whoever offered hot coffee/tea while people stand in line would be hugely popular!

I think I've also decided on Fred Meyer and then OfficeMax. Followed by quick stops at Mervyn's, Staples and Circuit City. Is that too ambitious? Heh, maybe, but we'll see. I've decided Sears isn't worth it -- it takes up too much precious shopping time to drive all the way out to Northgate and back.

Anywhere is better than BB, that place is a madhouse.

I prefer Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, Target, Fred Meyers, etc.

Yeah, I quickly ruled out BB after reading about the lines at checkout and before open. No, thanks!

Has anyone decided what time to go to Freddies (if it's your first stop of course)?

I'll be there at 4:45am... I know it's only 15 mins before open but it's not like I'm desperate for any doorbusters. I just want to soak it all up and check out the DVDs and calendars. :D

Freddies won't be as crowded, maybe 4:30 AM?

Ok... after days and hours (tonight) of mulling over all of the ads, I have a plan of attack! Freddies, OfficeMax, Mervyn's, Costco, Old Navy in that order, starting at 4:45am. Then, if I have time/energy, I'll hit Staples, Circuit City, JC Penney or Target. :D Oh, and I'm going to use that Border's coupon for the $9.99 Bridget Jones' Diary DVD but that's valid all weekend so I might save it for tomorrow. :yelclap: :clapping: :yelclap:

*cries* DON'T REMIND ME!! I honestly have no idea! I watch my Mum stock up there once every 2 months or so and see the money she saves and argh... Australia needs Costco badly!! That, and ROSS. I think I may hyperventilate from the withdrawl from those two. I'll have to... *gasp* PAY RETAIL!! Oops, forgot to say what I was getting at Costco! I'm checking out the Fox/WB DVD sets, the Planet Sleep pajamas (great quality, cute patterns! I own 3 pairs already) and Mum wants to check out a KitchenAid mixer.
