After Thanksgiving Sales Hot

I managed an apartment community for seven years. We sponsered a BLACK FRIDAY (DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING SHOPPING TOUR) for 5 years running. The 1st year we only had a hand full of residents go and we drove our own vehicles. The last year we had a bus of 50.

We loaded our residents around 8am and drove them to the Jefferson Outlet Mall (about an hour away). Upon arrival the resident went their seperate ways (or shopped in groups). We met are the food court at 11:30am and purchased lunch for all. After lunch the resident went back to shopping. We all met up around 4pm for the bus ride home. This was a time of lively conversation about the days purchases.

The cost was minimal (around $100.00) for the 1st few years. As our attendees grew and the transportation needs grew the cost increased (around $750.00) but it was a widely talked about event, even for those resident who did not attend.
