Oklahoma has passed the "Black Friday" bill and for the first time consumers in Oklahoma will get a full blown Black Friday Sale this year.
If you lived in Oklahoma you could just do your Black Friday shopping online. Now retailers in Oklahoma will be allowed to discount products for the first time. The Oklahoma House of Representative has passed the so called Black Friday bill that allows retailers to offer discount sales legally according to Ardmoreite.

Oklahoma had the Unfair Sales Act in place since 1941 that prevented retailers from offering discounts. Apparently the law was intended to protect local businesses from nation-wide chains. The Black Friday law will go in effect on November 1, just in time for the Black Friday 2013 Sales Season.
This year Black Friday is rather late falling on November 29th. In 2012, Black Friday was on November 23rd. Retailers will have four full weeks to please you with special Black Friday 2013 sales until the culmination of the actual Black Friday and the encore on Cyber Monday 2013 (December 2nd).
