Retailers Offer Impressive Shopping Deals the Week Before Black Friday


Only one week left until the biggest shopping day of the year; Black Friday. That means it’s time to start scouring the internet for sales, deals and Black Friday ads so you can plan your attack for the day after Thanksgiving – or the evening of Thanksgiving for those who aren’t into holiday tradition and time spent relaxing with family and friends.

This year the sales are said to be bigger than ever, even though that’s what retailers say every year. That’s all well and good, but some people aren’t into Black Friday shopping – at least not on the evening of Thanksgiving. Some people prefer to shop before the big holiday so that they can spend more time with family, and we have the biggest sales and deals of the week this weekend so that you can get your shopping done a bit early this year. After all, we do love checking things off our list well in advance, do we not? Read on to see the best deals of the week this week.

Ann Taylor Loft

This week it was announced that Loft is causing the entire Ann Taylor empire to drag in terms of profit and money, and that’s not good news for the company. The Loft portion of the company offers a more relaxed and casual approach to style, and this weekend they have some great sales for shoppers who appreciate their look.

Crabtree and Evelyn

Disney Store

Disney is making headlines this week as news has broken that parents are having a difficult time finding Frozen toys for their kids – particularly dolls that are offered in limited quantities. The store has offered sales on some items, but parents are panicking trying to find what their daughters really want. And this weekend, they’re offering some good sales, so that might make up for their lack of supply.

Save 25% on all holiday Disney décor and pajamas and save up to 30% on select Disney toys.

Rite Aid

Rite Aid gets major headline potential this week for the sale they’re offering right now. Buy any gift card to Starbucks or Barnes and Noble for at least $25 and you get $5 off the purchase price. This is big news for the store, since most people do not offer sales on gift cards.

Save $5 when you purchase any Starbucks or Barnes and Noble gift card worth $25 or more.


Of course Macys is in the news this week! There’s less than a week left until the big Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC, and Macys has announced they are planning on debuting new décor in the parade next week. Additionally, they’re going to show off some new floats this year, and fans are very excited. They should also get excited about this weekend’s sales.

JC Penney

The new isn’t good for JC Penney this week as the media has called out the company on their lack of good sales for the upcoming holiday weekend. But while the store might not have the best Black Friday deals to offer, they’ve got some pretty good deals to offer this weekend.

Save 20% on almost every purchase, and up to 50% on purchases in almost every department throughout the store.

Old Navy

Old Navy is still in the news after plus-size women were upset about the high price of items in their size versus smaller sizes, and the controversy just keeps coming. This week, the woman behind the anger stepped forward and she’s still talking about Old Navy in a negative light. The company, however, is focused on bringing you the deals this weekend.

Save big on daily deals, which change daily, and take as much as 40% off one item this weekend only.

Best Buy

The news is good this week for Best Buy after the company made headlines for their increased profits and their positive holiday outlook. The store looks to be bouncing back after a steady decline in sales and profit over the past few years. And they’re celebrating by offering some great deals to shoppers this weekend only.

This weekend only, save on six big time items during the pre-Black Friday sale.


Target has been in the news this week after the people in charge of this mega-retailer announced that they are working on bringing back the “Tarjay,” or the store that people loved. They announced they’ll be focusing on what’s important to buyers so that they can continue to improve. And here’s how they’re helping shoppers save this week.
