This guy was so excited to shop Badowers on Friday that he camped out. It is our sincere hope that you spent time with friends and family, watched football, and slept in on Friday morning. But apparently 100 Million people stayed up late or got up early to save a buck or just be part of the madness. This isn’t a big versus small thing. We understand that large corporations employ people and deliver goods and services that small businesses can’t. We do think it’s wrong to make an underpaid workforce come to work in the middle of the night on a holiday. No one would be worse off if the malls and large retailers opened at a sane hour. The small businesses in Des Moines are what make it a great place to live. Chances are the people working there know more about the things they sell and service. They really want to help you, want to know your name, want you to come back again and again. They work for you. We don’t have door busters. We do have hundreds of items picked out with thought and care to help you and the man you’re buying for look and feel his best. Happy Holidays!
