Every week, we ask area residents a question. The question may be serious, or it may be light-hearted. We will print the answers we receive here.
For this week’s question we asked:
Do you plan on going out for Black Friday? If so, what are some major items you’ll be looking for?
Probably not this year, but it just depends on what’s on sale. I usually go. – Vanessa Thomas
That’s the only day I like to go shopping. I’ll probably buy a bunch of stuff I don’t need! – Ebboni Crain
No, I’ll be working here in Ava at Shop Around The Corner. – Lisa Ritter
Definitely. Last year, my sister and I left at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving night to go to Branson. Once we were done there, we headed to Springfield. We always get the paper on Thanksgiving Day and start plotting out what we’re going to get and in what order. We usually take two vehicles so when we fill one up, we can go get the other one. Sometimes we don’t get home until midnight on Black Friday. It’s a lot of fun. – Missy Prock
Next week’s question is: Do you think reducing the speed limit on NW 13th Street will discourage people from using that street as a shortcut to Walmart? E-mail answers to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 417-683-4181.
