Not everyone is buying TVs on Black Friday

Posted:

Black Friday is just two weeks away and stores are gearing up for earlier opening times and new arrivals on the biggest deals. Cell phones, computers, and TVs are what we think everyone wants deals on this Black Friday. But as Best Buy tells FOX28's Faran Fronczak, they're gearing up for gaming.

So why games and not the TVs? Devin McCuen from the Best Buy in Mishawaka says a lot of people already have  TVs from last year's Black Friday. "It's going to be big. I think the gaming system is going to take over the TVs this year! The X-Box One and then the PS4 are going to be HUGE!" McCuen says. "We're going to have lots of people looking for those. It's going to be crazy in here! It's going to be awesome!"

Across town, Meijer says they aren't focused as much on games. Store Director Rick Zeeff says gaming manufacturers will only allow a certain number of systems per store, so Meijer is focused on a broad strategy - clothing, winter apparel, and shoes.

"It's a better move for us to try to get the whole family. Get mom in to buy games, possibly a gaming system," Zeeff says. "But the go over to the toy area and look at that and then into sporting goods. And then to shoes and fashions and get that warm coat or that nice sweater."

As you know, many stores are opening their doors earlier this year, including Best Buy. They kick off their Black Friday on Thursday -- Thanksgiving Day at 6pm.
