For Toledo, Black Friday’s rush surprisingly laid-back
Each Thanksgiving weekend, Rhonda and Doug Dressel of Lambertville follow a strict tradition — on Friday, get up before the crack of dawn, head for the stores, shop, and save. But this year they began at 6 a.m. rather than 4 a.m., and to their surprise the stores weren’t crowded. “In fact, I just said to (Doug) that it didn’t feel like Black Friday shopping because the lines were not bad and a lot of people weren’t in the stores,” Mrs. Dressel said after emerging from Macy’s at Franklin Park Mall about 10 a.m. with several full bags.
