Hate Black Friday Shopping? #OptOutside This Year
Instead of fighting over Christmas presents, REI is hoping you head outdoors on Black Friday this year.By Eugene Daniels | November 25, 2015
If being pushed and shoved while looking for low-priced Christmas presents is a nightmare of yours, you can take your Black Friday outdoors.
Dozens of state parks around the country are waiving fees to get people to enjoy nature instead of wrestling with someone's grandmother for a PS4.
It's all a part of outdoor goods store REI's viral #optoutside. The company is closing its doors on Black Friday because REI, like many retailers around the country, says Black Friday is getting out of hand. (Video via REI)
