We go if we see something advertised that we need. Three years ago was my first time Thanksgiving Day/Black Friday shopping experience.  We needed tvs. We left home at 5pm to go to the store, arrived at store at 530pm, got in line for the one-hour guarantee for tvs, received vouchers, got in check out line, out of store by 603pm. Tvs arrived about 2 weeks later. Pretty awesome.
