KATU is here to give you a leg up on the crowds on Black Friday and during the entire holiday shopping season. To help, we've compiled the following resources:
In a KATU News/Survey USA poll, one out of five people said they planned to shop early on Black Friday to snag the best deals. 14 percent of people said they'll shop later in the day, while almost 2/3 of people said they would avoid shopping altogether on Black Friday.
More than half of the people surveyed said they would do at least some of their holiday shopping online.
