Saving green on Black Friday

November 25, 2011

LINCOLN — There seem to be two types of Black Friday shoppers: the people who come out and wait begrudgingly in line for a specific sale item, and those who view it as one big, exhausting — but-enjoyable — road trip.
Pawtucket residents Pauline Tougas, Rachel Doyon and Jeannine Bourski fall into the latter category. The three women, along with a couple of other family members, headed out to do shopping at the major retail stores along Route 1 in South Attleboro, Mass. at 11:30 p.m. on Thursday and they were just finishing up at 9:30 a.m. on Friday.
