Black Friday: The Jury is Still Deliberating
Black Friday is often regarded as the epitome of an overly crazed capitalistic society.

Hi Gérard, everyone
The prices are very good on that day and we wanted to buy on line a High Rise Airbed Mattress with Built-In Electric Pump with a 60 per cent discount. Unfortunately it was an English website and when we clicked "country" there were only 2 possibilities :England and Ireland. Sad

Too bad Muriel!
In my region, many hypermarkets adopted the fashion of Black Friday with -50% discounts for that specific day (not anounced on a catalog), available for additional days on their drives.

Muriel,
After I wrote my post, I better checked: all of the hypermarkets around me (6 at less than half an hour on foot - including 1 Auchan) offer up to -70% till Sunday but with the mention "dans la limite des stocks disponibles"; I'll go tomorrow as in addition to huge discounts, E. Leclerc offers an addition 10 euro-gift for 40 euros expense.
Crazy!
I didn't anticipate this (as far as I understood, it's the second year for such "Black Friday").
