Happy Thanksgiving to our fellow neighbours down South! Like the Canadian Thanksgiving, the Americans also celebrate the season of Harvest by eating turkey and pumpkin pies with family and friends. The only difference is that it is in November instead of October!
Black Friday (November 23rd), as the title suggests, happens tomorrow where all the stores in the United States have these crazy, ridiculous sales and discounts off their merchandise.
Most sales starts right at midnight tonight so many keen shoppers are already lining up in front of stores right now! I suggest going down to Bellingham or Seattle this weekend to check out the deals or be spontaneous and join this West Trek Black Friday Midnight Shopping Tour that leaves tonight at 8pm!
While these two days of discounts have originated from the United States, many retailers in Vancouver and Canada are now participating to try and compete for customers. This is good news for us living in Vancouver as we don’t have to go all the way down to the States to save money (or I guess spend more money).
Cyber Monday (November 26th) is another day great day for us bargain shoppers, but the shopping is only done through online retailers! You don’t even have to leave your home to get great deals and discounts. This Cyber Monday website has all the best deals listed.
From my experience, the best sales are the stores that sell electronics such as Best Buy, Future Shop and even Apple have their rare, once a year sale! If you need a new laptop or iPad, this weekend will be your best bet.
I hope you get some great bargains this weekend! Happy Shopping!
