A couple of days ago I gave an interview to a reporter with the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC). He called me do get some security tips for retailers on Black Friday. He said that Canadian retailers were promoting Black Friday sales this year in order to keep people from coming to the United States to shop. Anyone else heard of this?

As of late, I've consulted for a couple clients regarding that very thing.
Interested in reading or watching your interview, in whichever medium it may be shown.
I think that the best way to tackle something like Black Friday would be to increase the level of physical security (not only guards, but also tighter, visual in-store security programs).
That being said, Canada historically does not have a comparative level of interest in our Black Friday sales versus the US. I anticipate most buyers will continue the trend of purchasing Black Friday sales items online.

Much of the interview centered around crowd control. He was particullary interested about the WalMart/Long Island tragedy and what lessons I thought were learned, by the retail industry, from that incident.

After reading this thread I have paid more attention to radio ads. A LOT of stores are having sales this week, calling them Black Friday Sales.
A question. Now that Canada is having Black Friday sales will the US start having Boxing Day sales on December 26?I enforce rules and regulations, not laws.
