Some of them have even been patient since Thursday noon and spent the night under the stars making sure nothing was missed.
“I want to buy my own computer. I even asked my boss and he told me so [je pouvais] Come here because I always work at 9 am,” said a young man interviewed by TVA Nouvelles on Friday.
In some places, like Best Buy, the insanity had nothing to do with the crowds I’ve been through in the past, especially because the merchant has extended their discounts over several days since the beginning of the week. Sales will also continue over the weekend at some businesses.
