Turkey isn’t the only thing to look forward to this week … if you’re hearty enough to brave the stores this holiday weekend, experts we spoke to said there are some huge deals to be had.

A majority of Black Friday shoppers are going to be looking for electronics and folks at Consumer Reports tell us that this is the season for HD televisions. With the country still bogged down by an economic crisis, HD TV makers are betting that people will still be lured into buying one if the price is right.

There are plenty of bargains on other electronics, as well as deals at major clothing retailers (although experts say inventories will be kept low this season so buy early), major book-sellers, online retailers and the list goes on and on.
