It's just that the bargain season extends beyond Black Friday. In 2003, U.S. retailers increased store opening hours. That year, Kmart, Walmart and Sears offered pre-dawn discounts.

Shoppers say deals and discounts are the most important factor in store choice, followed by free shipping and a convenient location. It's true that Black Friday has a great tradition in the U.S. because it started here, but if you were busy and missed it you still have a chance to buy Christmas gifts or treat yourself for little money.
