Black Friday traditions have ebbed and flowed in my family. When my kids were little, we would wake up super early to be first in line at the Nike outlet store at 6am. Young kids were as likely to wear through their sneakers as they were to outgrow them. This was our only stop at the outlet mall near my mom’s place. This year we shopped at Columbia, North Face, J Crew and Chicos. And we got there in the late afternoon after a trip to the beach.
