When I heard that the Public Parking Authority was going to offer free parking on Saturdays for the holiday my immediate thought was “where am I going to go, where am I going to shop?” I am so Pittsburgh that I remember the days of Horne’s, Gimbels, Kaufmann’s and Jenkins Arcade. Now, with free parking downtown on a Saturday, the only place that came to my mind was Burlington. Uh no. Not worth going Downtown for. However, on Black Friday I was on a mission not to shop at any big box stores. I didn’t get up at the crack of dawn, nor did I go shopping on Thanksgiving night. Perhaps I am partially cured of my shopping addiction; time will tell.
