But to those still being questioned about Thanksgiving shopping, many here will tell you, they’re buying for their loved ones.
“I’m going to give it for my kids. They don’t know yet, it’s supposed to be a surprise. Hopefully they don’t get to see this,” said Santos.
“For my son, Shane Bauer, this is all he wanted for Christmas, the XBox Series X, not the digital. I heard that a million times so I snuck out of the house today after we ate hoping to get it,” said Jon Bauer.
And to those who admitted to buying items for themselves, they also said it was okay, because their wife said so.
“My wife is like, ‘you should go get one’ and I’m like, ‘what’s the catch’? You know because happy wife, happy life. She did say I can’t open it for a while which is fine, but I’m happy,” said Eddy Anderson.
And while many major retailers closed for Thanksgiving, they’ll be open bright and early on Black Friday. The Target we came across in Daly City opens at 7 a.m., like so many other spots across the Bay and across the country.
