Black Friday requires preparation to not end up in a disaster.

Black Friday got a bad reputation a couple years ago when crowd control procedures have not been in place. Back in 2008 a Walmart worker died when doors opened for Black Friday. No wonder that big retailers take Black Friday seriously. Besides customer and employee safety, stores also want to have smooth transactions to maximize sales and keep customers satisfied.

Best Buy has staged Black Friday on the weekend to simulate Black Friday at Best Buy. They even had a simulated line. Sales people trained to guide the pretend shoppers to the deals they want. Best Buy associates got also briefed on the details of this years Black Friday deals. They also reviewed the doorbuster ticket policy and more. The Houston Chronicle witnessed a Best Buy Black Friday simulation at a local store.

"This is our Super Bowl," General manager Pipo Rodriguez told the more than 100 employees surrounding him. "This is our World Cup. This is our NBA Finals."

I have described how Black Friday works at Best Buy in detail on the example on how to get Best Buy's $149.99 49-inch Toshiba doorbuster deal.
