Flat screens are the big hit this Black Friday, like the ¢400.000 screen selling today for ¢100.000 at Sony store in Multiplaza Escazú. A number of consumers lined since early Thursday morning not to miss out on the deal.

Similar scenarios were common at other malls and commercial centres around the San José area.
