Florida Guide > Shopping
Black Friday shopping in Florida is an event in itself.
It is certainly one not to be missed by all you bargain hunters, with many items a fraction of the usual cost
Black Friday is the day after thanksgiving (this year 26th November 2010.
Most stores open at about 5 or 6 am and many finishes at 12 lunch time.
The sales are genuine not like in the uk were the sale goes on and on.
After 12 o’clock many items go back to the original price.
First a good idea would be to get a copy of the Orlando sentinel a few days before and look at what kind of things you would like
Last year we got to the Florida Mall at 5 30 and the parking lot was pretty full even by then.
We started at JC Penney’s as we wanted new bedding, as we got there we were given a Christmas water globe this is something of a ritual at JC Penney’s and they only have so many to give out
Once we got what we wanted there and put the goods in the car we went into the mall itself, Victoria secrets had a good sale with many items being under 50%
The only store we found that did not seem to participate in the sale was Abercrombie which to my daughter was disappointing
Also a good places for the sale is Wal-Mart it is manic in there but again very good discounts we got PJs at $4 a pair, I also got a sewing machine for less than half price ( I did bring that back to the UK and use it along with a converter plug).
Electrical goods are also a good buy and The Best buy shop is excellent . There is one near the Florida mall if you are that way out or there is also one at the loop shopping area
Again if electrical goods are purchased and you want to bring them back to the UK just remember your duty free allowance and also a converter plus Best Buy are very good with their knowledge on all their goods so you cant go wrong there
As said earlier a good place to find out what is for sale is the paper and also the TV has many ads telling you what is for sale and where
As places are spread out and you only have a limited time you will need to decide what you want and what shops to go to, but please go the atmosphere is like the old January sales
I do hope some of you get to go and bag your own bargains
