Americans are hitting the stores on the busiest shopping day of the year – Black Friday. It’s the first Black Friday since consumer goods from China have been hit with tariffs.

Retail analyst Burt Flickinger, Managing Director at Strategic Resource Group, said some retailers will be more impacted by the tariffs than others.

Flickinger said U.S. consumers may still be getting deals this Black Friday but he’s worried about the impact of the next round of tariffs scheduled to kick in Dec. 15.
