What are your plans for Black Friday?

Asked in Downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Anna Li.

"I plan to actively boycott all retailers on Black Friday."

Christine Bush, Mountain View

"For Black Friday, we try to avoid the crowds and shopping and have a nice, quiet day."

David Lin, Mountain View

"For Black Friday, I'm going to Canada. Because of Thanksgiving, it's actually cheaper to go out of the U.S."

Gaurav Bansal, Mountain View

"My plans for Black Friday are to enjoy the holidays, not shop, not do much of anything else except visit friends and enjoy their company."

Tracey Stanelun, Mountain View

"We try to make it a kinder, gentler Black Friday to shop here (at Boutique 4). We'll have cookies and hot chocolate to make it a more relaxing, comfortable experience than fighting the crowds at bigger department stores."

Tamara Michel, Mountain View
