With so much hype surrounding Black Friday, we wanted to know – are you really getting the best bargains?
11Alive set out to verify.
Are Black Friday bargains really the best?
True – for some items.
11Alive did some digging and found in 2015, JCPenney and Kohl's were slapped with lawsuits accusing them of inflating original prices to make it seem like you were getting a better deal. Macy's and Bloomingdale's were accused of the same thing.
The stores cleaned up their act after that, making sure prices reflected the real cost.
