Black Friday 2014: Our constantly updated guide to the in-store and online sales you need to know about
As Black Friday has officially been adopted into Canadian culture, we no longer have to make those stressful cross-boarder treks just to participate in the joy of savings. Especially as the holiday season is fast-approaching, it is vital to our existence that our favourite Canadian (and American) retailers offer the best possible deals and steals so we can breathe a little easier this holiday gift shopping season.
Taking place this year on November 28th—marking the start of the Christmas season—Black Friday 2014 will offer lower prices, special giveaways, extended hours, and even a few shopping perks like hot cocoa and treats to make your spending ventures a little more enjoyable. As such, we’ve sussed out all the best deals, services and offerings available both before and during Black Friday 2014. For those of you who choose to shop from the safety of your couch behind a computer screen, we’ve also included the top deals for Cyber Monday (hey, no judgement here!).
