Black Friday Store Maps: Where The Deals Are

One of the major keys to a successful in-store Black Friday experience is knowing where the retailer's putting the deals, and how that store is laid out.

Click on any store name below and you'll find the only hand-drawn deal maps in the country (exclusive to our network of stations). I only mapped out the 8 stores below since the lay-outs are similar from one location to the next. Some store sections will differ slightly, others may be the mirror image of a map. Knowing a store's layout could easily put a deal in your hands first.

Happy Shopping!

Mindy Fuller Hoeh: I was at home, thinking it was a sick joke. I realiesed when I was in the car on my way to work and the first tower fell and the song I was listening to was interupted, that it was no joke I milked cows at the time and we were milking away listening to the planes being grounded and we heard jet engines we freaked out and ran outside I remember my boss carried his shot gun all day we all looked up and saw a fleet of f-16's and big helecopters one of the f-16's tipped his wings I think to tell us everything is ok. This year I'm going to Shanksville with friends to remember.

Social Security Offices to Begin Closing 30 Minutes Early

Social Security Offices to Begin Closing 30 Minutes Early

Congressional Budget Cuts Force Reduced Public Hours

Effective August 15, 2011, Social Security field offices nationwide will close to the public 30 minutes early each day.  For example, a field office that is usually open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will close daily at 3:30 p.m.

While agency employees will continue to work their regular hours, this shorter public window will allow them to complete face-to-face service with the visiting public without incurring the cost of overtime.   Congress provided Social Security with nearly $1 billion less than the President requested for the budget this fiscal year, which makes it impossible for the agency to provide the amount of overtime needed to handle service to the public as we have in the past.
