even finished their turkey––3:29 p.m. on Thanksgiving! While people
identified their estimated shopping starting time, survey participants
aren’t necessarily looking forward to it.According to the

The survey, conducted by market researchers OnePoll and commissioned by
Groupon, also found that not wanting to fight the crowds, having enough
time, getting the day off work, being able to get everything home and
finding someone to watch the kids were stated as the biggest obstacles
to shopping on Black Friday.
“Getting something for everyone on your list doesn’t have to be so
hard,” said Aaron Cooper, president of North America, Groupon. “Whether
your family and friends prefer getting stuff, doing stuff or both, you
can give them everything for less through Groupon.”
