More Shoppers Buying Used For Black Friday
Forget camping outside those big box stores for deals. Some people are turning to second-hand stores.
The Regional Manager from "Pawn America" tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS they've seen sales go up 30% on Black Friday over the last four years.
Meanwhile a financial expert we talked to said-- it's worth considering second-hand stores.
"Why would I spend $100 for something when i could find it somewhere for $50 bucks and save myself some money. Obviously the more you can save, the better off you're going to be," said Nicole Middendorf.
One of the reasons that second-hand stores are doing better is buying used products has become more accepted. That is thanks to websites like E-Bay.
