BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The days of shoppers waiting in long lines to rush to a store are slipping into the history books. COVID-19 protocols made some retailers shift to online sales back in 2020, but few have reverted to in-store doorbusters. However, even though the dynamics of black Friday have changed, analysts say it’s shaping up to be a record-breaking year for weekend shopping. The National Retail Federation expects more than 166 million people to shop today through Cyber Monday.

We want to know: Do you prefer to do your Black Friday shopping in person or online?

Never have shopped black friday.
