It’s coming. It’s coming and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Retail chains and brick and motor establishments are gearing up this week for the single darkest shopping day of the year — Black Friday. It’s this week.

Which, other than the huge crowds and panic, means awesome savings for us in most cases. In case you need to brush up on your game plan, here are a few places to start looking for deals on tools and gear.

Lowe’s: As always, Lowe’s will be sporting deals on housewares, tools and holiday supplies.

Home Depot: HD will be getting their spirit on in almost every department, including tools. Check out some of the Ryobi and Dewalt combo kits as well as select stand-alone tools for some on-the-cheap gifts or shop scores. We have the feeling these won’t last long, so get there early.

Sears: is a little nebulous this year, but there are still deals to be had. Check Sears out every Wednesday for the next Saturday’s deals for their “Black Friday every Saturday” program. Yeah, it sounds strange, but as long as there are deals on tools we don’t really care.

    WHAT A LOT OF BULL.THEY SELL ALL THE JUNK AND LOWER QUALITY TOOLS THAT EITHER THEY CAN’T GET RID OF OR THEY ARE NOT CURRENT MODELS.

    Isn’t the Friday after Thanksgiving called “Black Friday” because the revenue it generates puts retail stores “into the black” on their balance sheets for the first time all year?

    Or, said another way, wouldn’t that be the single brightest shopping day of the year?

    True enough for the first part Bajajoaquin. Makes the bosses happy to see profits go from red to black. But not for your latter statement if your just one of the poor schmucks on the bottom of the totem pole work in retail dealing with that chaos. I think its gotten much better in the past few years, but I’ve heard horror stories of rude customers destroying displays and even knocking over people to BUY BUY BUY!!!

    I worked part time in retail in college before people went nuts over Black Friday. Every year there is at least one news story about people trampling someone to save $2 on some gadget or other. My inlaws used to get up at 4am to be waiting outside stores at 5am, wait in line freezing for them to open then fight mobs of lunatics to save a few bucks. Not for me. I’ll order online or wait for another sale before Christmas. Plus I’m not into buying people the “hot item” of the year. Gift cards make great presents for most of my friends and family.

    Older than dirt is right about the majorty of Black Friday offers. They also sell special one-off models lacking key features. However, they do often sell some very nice loss leaders at steep discounts, and that is what you must aim for.

    I must confess, I’m a Black Friday addict. I love buying cheap crap and I love scoping out deals. I particularly love the chaos (even though it is something far tamer than most mosh pits) of it all. People usually conduct themselves with decency though, and there are many like me who refuse to trample anyone (I guess that’s pit etiquette carrying over).

    Sears had mostly lackluster deals, but I was able to score 2 7pc Metric GearWrench Flex-head Ratcheting wrench sets for only $30 a piece. One is for me and the other goes to my buddy who is a Master Tech. I think those wrenches were probably the best score I had all day.
