Black Friday Midwest Style

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Was the prospect of getting up at 3 a.m. on Friday morning too much to bear? Did you miss out on the $5 flatscreen TV deals at your local big-box store? Never fear.

By the way, the Type-A people in this photo (right)—yes, the woman in the homemade Snuggie and the couple in down with the baby—hate each other's guts. [Racked Chicago]
