Survival Tips for Black Friday!

Survival Tips for Black Friday!

Like winter, Black Friday is coming and there’s nothing we can do to stop it! Amazing deals, long lines and doorbusters are on the agenda. Feeling unprepared? We’re here to help with our Black Friday Survival Tips.

Check Your Bag
Leave the giant purse at home! Opt instead for a small purse or cross-body bag that will free up your hands for grabbing all those great deals. You don’t want anything unnecessary weighing you down.

 

 

 

 

 

Plan Ahead

If you want to make sure you’re getting the best deals, planning is key. Study all the ads before heading out so you know exactly which deals you want to snatch up. We’ve got something cool called Easy Pass, where you basically take your online shopping cart and make it come to life for you in-store! Pick out what you want online and store associates can help you try it out!

Bring a Buddy
Shopping is always better with a friend. Black Friday is no exception. You’re going to need some backup. There will be a lot of waiting around so having one (or more) friends with you is sure to make the time pass more quickly. Friends can also help you divide and conquer for the best sales.

 

 

 

 

 

Pick the Right Footwear
It’s always nice to look your best, but for Black Friday comfortable shoes are a must. You’ll be on your feet a long time in various types of weather and temperatures so make sure you build your ensemble around your comfiest shoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pack a Snack
Black Friday shopping is a marathon, not a sprint. Make sure you’ve got some healthy snacks and small bottles of water to stay on top of your game as the early morning goes into late afternoon. A morning boost of coffee or green tea is also a must-have for that all important pick-me-up to keep you alert and ahead of the competition.

Stay Positive
All the crowds and commotion can cause a lot of stress. Remember to stay friendly and not take your shopping TOO seriously. If everyone remembers to be kind and courteous, the day can stay fun for all.

 

Stay Connected

Make sure you charge your cellphone before heading out. For the more aggressive shopper, get a portable charger to carry around with you. You don’t want to find yourself stranded or separated from your group.

Make Space
If you play your cards right, you’re gonna end up with an impressive haul of great deals. That vacuum cleaner that’s been in your trunk since May, clear it out! Make the time now to clean out your car and trunk so you have enough room to store all those amazing steals!
