On the 26th of November, the much anticipated Black Friday Sales will be upon us once more. The 24-hour shopping extravaganza will offer us the much needed chance to maximise value on our Christmas shopping, get that outfit we’ve had our eye on for the festive season, and seize the moment to finally get that big ticket tech item without breaking the bank!
Despite many retailers already announcing their sales, Black Friday officially kicks off tomorrow, followed by Cyber Monday on November the 29th 2021. The epic deals on offer this year across all our beloved flagship stores are sure to stir up a frenzy, so here are our tips on navigating the day:
- Plan your shop for ultimate efficiency: make a list (check it twice)
- Book your parking: capitalise on the awesome parking deals on offer
- Don’t panic: the stores are open early and close late, so make your way over at your own convenience.
- Keep a safe distance from your fellow shoppers and don’t forget to bring a mask!
- Take breaks and dress comfortably – endurance is key!
This year, our favourite shopping centres will open their doors for later and longer. JB Hi-Fi, Big W, Kmart, Officeworks, Amazon, Kogan and Dyson are among the big names with a range of huge specials on offer. Here are what a few of our favourite shopping destinations are doing on the day:
