What If Singapore Practices "Black Friday"?

I wonder by how much would singaporean shoppers differ from our American counterparts when it comes to Black Friday Shopping.

Black Friday, is as some of you might now know is usually the Friday after thanksgiving and it marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. During that day and only that day, major retailers all over the country will offer massive sales to almost all their products, most of which would be slashed by soo much, that it would be a steal, and many would almost kill to get it from the stores.

In America, it is often heralded as the busiest shopping day of the year. Malls and shops are open on odd hours and people would lined up at the entrance, hours or days in the bitter winter cold just to snag that bargain off the retail shelves. Basically anything that is sold are discounted, some so heavily that it is sold out within hours or even minutes. There have been reports of stampedes and deaths as the result from all those commotions, but all in all it the only time of the year where you can shop till you drop an save substantially at the same time.

If Singapore has such a thing, it would be interesting to see how it all goes. The commotion singapore style, aunties snagging for pieces of clothing, mega mall packed with people. It would be like going to Comex or Sitex, except that everything is sold out within hours of opening the shop. Jam packed full of people with cartloads of stuff, stuff you might be wondering why they have 10 of them in the first place.

For me, ill definitely go for apparels and electronics. Electronics definitely. Id go crazy if everything is heavily discounted and it only offered on that day itself. Consumerism at its best (or worst)
