After the final slice of pie has been eaten, the leftovers are stowed away for many dinners to come and the last touchdown has been scored, it’s time for another great Thanksgiving tradition: Black Friday shopping!
Everyone has their own approach to Black Friday shopping. In my family we tend to go out at about 7am, when the crowds are in the transition period from the all-nighters to the day-time shoppers. But I know plenty of people that prefer to go at midnight, before they even go to bed. No matter what your Black Friday shopping strategy is, we all know there are lots of benefits to shopping early.
So, why shop early? For the best deals, of course! Smaller crowds and easier parking are added bonuses if you go first thing in the morning. Imagine having most (or all) of your holiday shopping done before the end of November! And paying almost half the price as you would originally is a pretty nice perk as well. Another good tip is to know where you’re going BEFORE you get to the mall so you can have a solid plan and outline of where to go instead of walking back and forth from one end to the other. Check out the mall website to see the directory and to plan your trip accordingly.
The mall officially opens at 5am, but there will be plenty of activity well before then. This year at White Marsh Mall, we’re excited to announce that we have over 50 of our retailers opening at 12:00 midnight on Friday to help you get the best deals and a jump start on your holiday shopping.
So who’s opening early? Just to name a few, you’ll find…
- American Eagle
- Deb Shops
- The Disney Store
- Bath & Body Works
And many, many more! Some of your favorite food vendors will also be open at midnight so you can grab some late-night or early morning refreshments to keep going.
