    You technically would not be helping out a dying chain since most companies lose money on their black friday deals, and more things normally on sale than you’d think. The idea is that when you’re in looking for the deals, you’ll stumble upon other things you want and they can make money on.

    @Ryan – Yea it depends on how much the stores buy it for I guess, I highly doubt Circuit City is selling most of this at a loss since so far they have the “biggest selection” of Black Friday items.

    Trust me, almost anything in that week’s ad is being sold at a loss, or breaking even. Especially anything you say “What a great deal, I’ll be there at 4 am in the freezing cold” for. There are some items that are not though, it’s just hard to decipher what those are, and even then the profit margin is low.

    Keep in mind, you generally only get to go to one “doorbuster” sale, per the laws of physics. The stores are banking on your not leaving and finding parking somewhere else, so you’ll shop more while you’re there.

    Sorry for the double post, I hit enter accidentally. :)

    Except that as an electronics/music instrument dealer I can tell you for a fact that most wholesalers drop prices to dealers for black friday specials. Circuit City is NOT losing money on these. One of my wholesalers had that Samsung blu player on special for black friday deals for $175.00. They certainly are not getting rich off these items but they ARE making money.
