“I think a lot of people wait on it and they take advantage,” said Beverlee Anglin, Owner of Infinity Fashions.
All over the island, businesses small and large are putting on Black Friday sales to give their business a boost before Christmas.
“It’s good profit and it’s a good time to clear out everything that you want to get rid of and bring in new stuff,” Miss Anglin said.
From experienced Black Friday operators such as this ladies store, to beginners, all are throwing their hats in the ring.
“I think they should, they will make good money,” said Miss Anglin.
“Well, I’ve only been open for four years and I just didn’t take part in it before, I just decided to do it this year,” said Angelita Durrant, Owner of Advent Fashions.
