Four more days!!!
If you know me, you’ll know I’m crazy about new store openings and Boxing Day. When it comes to shopping, I don’t mess around. I am that girl that wakes up at 5 a.m. to hit the stores bright and early to get the best deals (or 4 a.m. if it’s an IKEA grand opening…). Minus a million weather? Pff, that ain’t going to stop me. I love the rush, the crowds, the excitement.
Traditionally here in Canada, Boxing Day was the one day of the year where stores and retailers offered the best deals, but to keep the Canadian economy going, and to keep our cash in our country, pretty much every retailer has followed America’s lead and brought Black Friday deals to our home and native land.
I attended Black Friday last year at Polo Park Mall and did find some amazing deals (tons of stuff at Lululemon for $19!), and of course, as time goes by, Black Friday has gotten bigger and better.
Although Black Friday lands on November 28, Polo Park is starting the celebration early. From now until November 26, shoppers will have the chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree with a stylist on Black Friday. To enter, stop by Centre Court at the stylist activation boot, or visit their website, or download the new CF SHOP! app. Contest closes on November 26 at 5 p.m. CST.
Speaking of the app, available now, the app features store promotions, events, a store directory, and customers can check their SHOP! gift card balances (SHOP! cards make perfect gifts because you can use them at most stores at any Cadillac Fairview mall). For those shoppers who like to get interactive, stop by Centre Court and sign up for a free style consultation until this Wednesday, November 26.
And finally, the day we’ve been waiting for, Polo Park opens at 7 a.m. on Black Friday, November 28 (although I did see this weekend that Bath & Body Works opens at 6 a.m.). Both 103.1 Virgin Radio and 99.9 BOB FM will be broadcasting live in Centre Court starting at 8 a.m., and of course Santa will be there as well (he loves a good deal too!). Also, come dressed to impress as Swish Productions will be surprising some fashionable shoppers with SHOP! cards throughout the day.
Unfortunately I work on Black Friday, but if there are any really good doorbusters I might have to make it to the mall for 7 a.m. If not, I’ll be stopping by as soon as I get off work for the day. I’m planning on hitting Lululemon, Sephora, Apple, H&M, The Bay, and Dynamite for some #BFF (Black Friday Fashions, obviously!).
Are you excited for Black Friday? What stores will you be hitting up?
