SPOKANE, Wash. -- KREM 2 On Your Side investigated whether it was worth the time to brave Black Friday crowds to score a good deal on some of this year’s most popular products.
KREM 2 tracked the price of five hot buys during the Black Friday sales. KREM 2 compared the prices to check whether it was better to purchase the items on Black Friday or wait until closer to Christmas. Those items included a 50" LED TV, a Home Depot Play-set, a kayak, battery operated heated socks and a woman's fashion coat.
The price for the TV and kayak went up after Black Friday and did not come back down. The play-set price bounced around but it ended up being more expensive than Black Friday. The socks also dipped and spiked in price between Black Friday and Christmas. The fashion coat cost the exact same on Christmas Eve as it did on Black Friday.
