The Tracy Press asked visitors to the West Valley Mall on Monday, Nov. 19,

“What are your plans for Black Friday?”

“Fireplace, recliner chair, TV and avoiding the stores.”

— George Bassett, 64, of Tracy

“Avoid shopping. I did try that one time. I went to Mervyn’s when it was open in Manteca, and it was hideous, and I said I’d never do that again.”

— Judy Bassett, 66, of Tracy

“I don’t really go to Black Friday. Usually, I’m just at home.”

— Jasmin Castro, 14, of Tracy

“I might go camp out for shoes that are coming out.”

— Noah Martinez, 16, of Tracy

“We’re going to hopefully sleep in late and enjoy time with our daughter, son-in-law and our granddaughter.”

— Dee Wackerly, 72, of Manteca

Black Friday: A day Americans are willing to kill over materialistic things just a day after celebrating what they're already thankful for.

Don't forget to be extra nice to the store cashiers, they'll need it and appreciate it.
