My favorite holiday is right around the corner! I’ve been counting down the days, polishing my credit cards and practicing my speed-walk around the neighborhood while lifting heavy bags – all in preparation for the best day of the year: Black Friday!
Sure, Thanksgiving is great. But in my family, we’ve jokingly called this holiday “Black Friday eve” and used it as an excuse to fuel up and come up with a game plan for the next day. And, while many people are turning to online sales, I still enjoy in-person shopping (safely, with a mask and while social distancing this year). If you are looking for the best deals, want to support small businesses or simply enjoy the hustle and bustle (and beautiful lights!) that is all starting this week, then check out my game plan for celebrating Black Friday in Addison, below.
Start your preparations close to home at Village on the Parkway in Addison! Many of the stores in the shopping center will be offering deals and discounts on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. The chic women’s boutique, Francesca’s, is offering up to 50% off clothes, accessories and jewelry; 40% off sweaters, jackets, handbags, shoes and gifts; and 30% off candles. And, at Chico’s, you can get 40% off your purchase with code 79855, as well as receive a $20 bonus card with a $100 gift card purchase.
Galleria Dallas is open from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Black Friday (they are closed Thanksgiving Day), and many retailers inside the shopping center will be offering their own Black Friday deals. For example, Nordstrom is offering up to 50% off items online, now through Dec. 1, and many other deals in the store. Zara is offering items at 45%, starting online now.
Finally, you can also go shopping at the Shops at Willow Bend right now. They are offering many sales, including buy 3, get 3 free at Bath & Body Works, luxe brands sale up to 50% off at Neiman Marcus, 25% off bareMinerals, 50% off everything at Banana Republic, and 40-50% off everything at Zales.
I hope your Black Friday (and all the rest of your holidays) are great this season! Be sure to stay caffeinated, pace yourself and have fun. It’s going to be awesome!
