It’s crazy to think that Thanksgiving is right around the corner – in fact, it’s just next month. Where in the world did the year go?! With November just a hop, skip and a jump away, it can only mean one thing: Black Friday is coming up quickly! Sears is a great place to get your shop on to get the best variety to fulfill your shopping needs. From their already low prices to their great stock on clothes, home goods, and appliances, there is something for everyone on your holiday shopping list! But in order to get the most out of a Sears Black Friday experience, you need to be prepared for anything and everything and you’ll definitely want to strategize!
Here are some tips on getting ready for Sears Black Friday:
– Read and scour the ads. Before the big day, retail stores will have their ads printed in advance so you can see what they are offering. This is great because if you plan to go hit more than one store, you can roughly map out what you want to purchase from one place as well as another. Sears has ads in the Thursday (Thanksgiving Day) papers, so be sure to check those out.
– Pay attention to the deals. While it may seem like Black Friday would have the best deals of the season, that isn’t always the case – you can actually get even better deals the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, Cyber Monday and even mid-December amidst all the holiday shopping. Keep your eyes open and be aware to get the best deals.
– Be prepared to be an early bird. Though Black Friday is technically supposed to fall on a Friday, many retailers open even earlier on Thanksgiving. Sears often opens at 8pm on Thanksgiving. If camping outside of a store on Turkey Day isn’t appealing to you, just get there as early as possible before opening, and make note of all the deal times.
– Beat the early birds. Prior to the big day, many stores may have pre-Black Friday deals, so be sure to watch out for those! Keep posted on the Sears website and you might even want to check out the store the Wednesday before Thanksgiving to learn the store’s floor plan.
