Let the holiday shopping season begin
The Friday after American Thanksgiving has long been referred to as Black Friday and is widely regarded as the beginning of the holiday shopping season. Though we are Canadian, and celebrated Thanksgiving over a month ago, retailers throughout the country are feeling the need to keep up with our neighbours to the south. This year, for Black Friday, staying open long beyond average hours and offering a myriad of enticing promotional sales and deep discounts has become the norm for Canadian retailers. If you're like us, you've spent the past couple weeks brainstorming ideas to get you out of the office and into the mall in order to blow off some steam and get some much needed retail therapy. We're lucky to have some of the best malls in the country here in Toronto, why not take advantage of that?
The Toronto Eaton Centre is downtown's premiere shopping destination with over 230 stores & service outlets on-site. There will be a wide range of Black Friday promotions to be found within this sprawling mall, along with extended hours from 7:00 am - 9:30 pm so you can take advantage of all the sweet deals!Eaton Centre
Another retail mecca near midtown is the Yorkdale Shopping Centre. Complete with upwards of 250 stores & service locations, this will be the place to be on Black Friday to capitalize on sales in every category! Also featuring extended hours, Yorkdale opens at 8:00 am and won't close its doors until 11 pm, leaving you more than enough time to get some of that holiday shopping done and save some money in the process. If you're planning on being one of the early risers on Friday, the first 100 Yorkdale guests will receive a $50 gift card!Yorkdale Shopping Centre
