As grocery stores are stocking their shelves to prepare for the Thanksgiving rush, retailers across North Delaware are preparing for Black Friday – a day for huge savings if you plan correctly. Black Friday rookies: review these helpful hints to surviving the day before you head out to the Concord or Christiana Malls or any other area retailer:
- Research the deals. Sign up for e-newsletters from your favorite retailers, Like them on Facebook, and check their websites for the latest promotions. Print out any special deals you find and bring them with you shopping on Black Friday. Some stores, like Target and Walmart, offer price matching if you bring in their competitors promotions as proof.
- Make a detailed list. List each person you need to shop for, along with a few gift ideas for each person. Black Friday is not the time to browse for present ideas. Know what you want – and have multiple backup options – before you step foot in any store.
- Set a budget. Don’t let the excitement of Black Friday sales sway you into spending more than you can afford. Set a budget and stick to it. The point of Black Friday is to wrack in the savings, but the discounts often lead shoppers to overspend.
- Compare prices. Although Black Friday is historically associated with the best prices, you may be able to find lower prices online. Download the Google Shopper app for an easy way to compare prices online.
- Shop Cyber Monday. If you can’t bring yourself to spend hours battling crowds in stores, and don’t have the gumption to camp outside Thanksgiving night, Black Friday isn’t for you. Cyber Monday boasts serious online discounts and promotions while shopping from the comfort of your own home.
