Now that all the key ads are out, it's time for one of my two annual surveys of GottaDeal members.

 

What stores do you plan to shop at this Thanksgiving / Black Friday?  Check all that apply in the survey!

 

This is the sixth year I have done this poll, which has grown to four questions.

 

 

 

Apologies if one of your stores is missed, I can only include 50 choices in each survey.  (Which is why I added aditional questions a couple of years ago in order to move some stores into separate groups.

 

If you change your plans, you can come back and click "Delete My Vote" and do it all over again.

We still don't have Home Depot   :(

 

That first question is really difficult because if I can get everything online Wednesday night, many of those stores I won't shop at in-person...

I just changed one of the choices in the online section to "I check various web sites and will buy wherever I find the best deal on something I am interested in."

Headed to Meijer for... CAT LITTER (!?!) Thursday morning. Later on in the late afternoon/evening, I'll head out to Walmart (maybe) and then Best Buy if I wasn't able to grab everything from there online. Friday is PetSmart/B&BW/several other places as the mood strikes. lol


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

I'll add Kohl's to the online list next year due to its popularity, but for now it falls under "Websites for other B&M stores"

Interesting. I am with bribri25; if I can get some of my items online before hand, there are some stores I won't visit in person. Thanks for doing this poll.

I'm in Mass. No stores are allowed to open on Thanksgiving, except convenience stores and 24 hour pharmacies.

Looking at the final results, I am surprised at the number of stores that either none or just one of the 40 respondents said they would visit, including Cabela's, F.Y.E, Sports Authority, Dell.com, some regional department stores, and all three military stores.
