CLEVELAND — Black Friday in the middle of a pandemic. The day looks different this year as the world continues to adjust to COVID-19.

3News’ Austin Love and Danielle Wiggins talked with each other and viewers about Black Friday traditions and deals during Friday's On the GO! morning aftershow.

Facebook user Angela Nieman writes she is shopping online this year, which is a change from years past. 

“Staying away from ppl (people)! Normally go out shopping on Black Friday with my family!”

Austin revealed he’s not a fan of traditional Black Friday shopping.

“I don’t want to be around these crowds, especially this year,” Austin shared. “I’m not going to like stampede anyone. I don’t care about anything that much. I would much rather spend 25% more … than deal with fighting in crowds and waiting eight hours in line. I don’t want to deal with it.”

For those who plan to venture out … Danielle shared a story covered on the GO! morning show where WalletHub reports JCPenney, Macy’s and Kohl’s are offering the steepest discounts. The retailers have an average discount of at least 52%.

Remember, we host On the GO! -- our special morning aftershow -- live each weekday morning at 7:05 a.m. on Facebook and YouTube.
