The Great Recession had left manufacturers with far more big-screen TVs and washing machines than they could sell. The Indianapolis-based electronics chain was happy to buy the surplus. The low prices it paid enabled it to boost profit margins even near the bottom of a severe economic slump. Now the company is trying the same idea with stores.

Black Friday not too strong for shoes In past years, shoppers had complained about parking in the Harbor East area. This year, Harbor East is offering free parking for three hours for any shopper who can produce $100 worth of receipts for area stores, says Joshua Love, a store manager at Benjamin Lovell shoe store. "People seem to be really happy about it," he says. While several shoppers were browsing the shoe store Friday morning, Love says Black Friday is not a huge day for footwear.

Electronics chain hhgregg had been content to methodically grow from its Midwest roots until the recession hit — and then the retailer became more aggressive than ever. While other retail chains were toppling all around it, Indianapolis-based hhgregg turned economic malaise into opportunity and began scooping up bargain leases. It opened about two dozen stores during the past year, with plans to open as many as 45 more new stores in the coming year. The company's red-and-white banner is now part of the retail landscape in the Baltimore area, where it celebrated the grand opening of six stores last week.
