Black Friday Countdown at Office Depot OfficeMax
The Black Friday countdown has begun! Often considered the busiest retail day of the year, Black Friday marks the unofficial beginning of the holiday shopping season, and with the number of sales and bargains available, it can be a great time to take advantage of special deals while trimming your holiday gift-giving list. You probably already have a number of gift ideas in mind, so head into Black Friday with a plan to help you get as much completed as possible.
When Does Black Friday Start?
So, when is Black Friday? While it officially doesn't start until the day after Thanksgiving, many retailers choose to open late on Thanksgiving Day, letting shoppers take advantage of extra hours.
Getting Ready For Black Friday
Retailers often release their Black Friday sales well in advance, letting customers know what to expect when the big day comes. Be sure to compare your gift list against the bargains that are available, and find the ones that best meet your needs. Keep in mind that many of the biggest deals have limited availability, making it a good idea to have a back up plan in case you can't grab your first choice. Browse the Internet to find the deals you need. Many shopper sites track Black Friday sales, so you can find the deals from multiple retailers in a single location.
The Big Day
It's a great idea to get an early start on Black Friday. Be sure to set an alarm to help you rise and shine, and don't forget to brew up a big pot of coffee that will help you feel alert and energized.
