Ok,September is inching closer to the end and that means Black Friday is right around the corner. Now, we know everyone is very excited and ready to shop for those low-cost doorbuster. But, for the newcomers, when do we usually start seeing the ads for BF? IF i remember correctly, I think ACE Hardware was the first last year.Cheers!:D

I say Ace Hardware. Kmart might get in early, but those other three ya mentioned in the poll are usually among the last ads to be found.

It definitely will not be any of those listed in the poll, as they all normally release cease and desist orders that prohibit early release. I'm going to go with Ace- on September 22nd.

Only Walmart sent a letter of the ones in the poll. But yeah, those stores usually don't come out until November.

I'd join those in the Harbor Freight / Ace Hardware bandwagons. They seem to have the earliest leak times.

OK, its not the highlight of BF :shock:, but I have gotten some very nice little deals at Ace on BF (or through the weekend), if you use (or know someone who can use) some basic tools. :bonk:
