Many may ask where this was?It was the scene at a Tilly’s store in Mission Valley on midnight at Black Friday of last year. It was one of the worst decisions I could have made, not only was nothing bought but the experience was horrible. It was terrifying.But as this Black Friday approaches, what deals are around this year?Around City College there isn’t that much in the way of a mall, asking around I got some interesting stores that would be perfect for Black Friday.The store 5 And a Dime on 701 8th. St, is welcoming San Diego’s Black Friday shoppers through their doors at midnight on Thursday. It is a local East Village shop that offers clothing styles any hipster-ish male would love.

There are a plethora of thrift stores downtown, like The Salvation Army and the adjacent Goodwill. Both offer amazing deals, but not much as far as the typical Black Friday deals.
