Black Friday brings great sales

A roundup of participating local stores

If this is your idea of a great day out, Black Friday is your Olympics.

This Friday is Black Friday. To the uninitiated, that might sound like something out of a horror film, but those in the know can barely contain their excitement as it creeps ever-closer.

The traditionally US event sees professional shoppers utilise those extra Thanksgiving calories to whizz around stores at unearthly hours looking for the best deals on a range of items. That celebration has filtered southward and gained popularity in Cayman over the past few years. It seems more and more local stores now wish to take part in the annual event. Check out some shops to visit this Black Friday.
