LISTEN: How To Do Black Friday In A Pandemic

West Farms Mall

Connecticut Public Radio

For years, the Thanksgiving schedule for so many of us has gone as follows: family, football, feasting and Friday … Black Friday, that is: the day we go shopping for that new TV at the unbelievable sale price! But this Black Friday comes amid a pandemic. Suddenly, gathering in hordes at the mall doesn’t seem like the safest idea. For a look at how Black Friday might be different this year, Tim Phelan, president of the Connecticut Retail Merchants Association, joined us on All Things Considered.

John Henry Smith is Connecticut Public’s host of All Things Considered, its flagship afternoon news program. In his 20th year as a professional broadcaster, he’s covered both news and sports.
