For many people, last year’s holiday season was unlike anything we had seen before. We were forced to give up memorable traditions, missed out on seeing friends and family, and stayed home instead of attending parties. A year later, things are pretty much back to normal and people are getting a jump start on their shopping. Usually, A Girl in NYC waits until the day after Thanksgiving to release our coveted list of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. This year, however, we couldn’t wait!
Our guide is broken down by the type of retailer and/or what they’re most known to carry. Underneath that is a list of stores along with the kind of deals they’re offering. Keep in mind, a lot of these retailers are continually changing up their discounts and offers; especially the ones that are offering pre-Black Friday sales. Whether you plan on doing your holiday shopping now, or waiting until after Thanksgiving be sure to bookmark this guide so you can refer back to it.
A Girl in NYC wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! Next up—our long-awaited holiday gift guides will make their return at the end of the week.
