Your Guide to Black Friday in Metro Phoenix

Once a year, the act of camping outside Best Buys and Targets is as American as apple pie -- and gorging yourself on apple pie to the point of abdominal pain. Now, we love shopping. Really, we do. (See evidence in our weekly column Gem.) However, no matter how sweet a deal we might find on Jeffrey Campbells or a new tablet, there is no earthly way we're waking up at the crack of dawn, or frankly any time prior to 9 a.m., the day after Thanksgiving. That is too much to ask. Diehards we are not. For that reason, we've rounded up this list of Black Friday discounts from some of our favorite shops in the Valley.
