Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year! It’s a great time to stock up on holiday gifts for friends and families (and maybe a little something for yourself as well). Here are everything you need to know about tackling Black Friday in LA:
Research Ahead of Time
Heading into Black Friday without a game plan? Rookie mistake. Make a list of what you want to score and scour the internet for any applicable sales. Channel your inner “Monica” and map out your route – you’ll want to stay off the road as much as possible so start at the furthest store and work your way home.
Spread Out Your Shopping
Gone are the days when Black Friday meant 6am-noon shopping – retailers are expanding their hours! While we’d prefer to keep Thanksgiving shopping-free, you can hit local boutiques on Small Business Saturday or stay in your PJs and shop on Cyber Monday.- Black Friday is now an entire long weekend!
Subscribe to Newsletters
Spam e-mail from brands is annoying 364 days of the year, but for Black Friday be sure to refresh your mail app – companies will often e-mail out exactly what’s going on sale, offer additional discounts, or give away freebies. BONUS: Figure out what you want or need ahead of the day with a real list, like that dress you’ve been eyeing or the TV you need in the living room and see where they’ll be on sale in advance!
After all of that shopping, take some much-needed “me time” and unwind with a drink!
