We will be in Columbus for a tournament, so I plan on checking a few places out, if they're close.

 

What is the border like on the Thursday, say noonish?

We have set stores to hit for set things. No browsing ( we think...lol). The border is usually a breeze early, but traffic gets thick around 7am and then just gets worse from tht point on. I'm hoping for one of our lucky trips where everything is breezy :)

Not a chance! I'm never that desperate to buy things.

Has anyone found a reliable flyer source online for Friday???  I can see all the Thursday times, but no Friday times.  Its usually out by now.  Im not going if I don't have a game plan.

Check the stores that you will be shopping at. I have received e-mails from Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and a bunch of them with their hours and a few ads.

 

Have you also seen the Black Friday Ads on this website: https://bfads.net/Register

 

They e-mail them to your e-mail box when they get them.

I just have not seen any deals/specials that would make going over and battling the crowds worth it!!

Ive seen a a couple things that make the trip worth while, although the Grey Thursday deals seem to be better than whats advertised for Friday.  Im a little peeved at the change over this year. I would have preferred to go Thursday evening, but last year the Friday deals where better.Oh well, its hard to gauge, but a fun morning out with my mum and the babs, which is really why we are going :)
