going sale-ing

Black Friday Shopping Guide 2011

November 25 is Black Friday. Not to be confused with Brown Thursday, it is the day Americans might spend $20.3 billion, and many major retailers are hosting sales at all hours, previously something we’d only see at the Walmarts of the world. Regardless, starting on Friday (and even as early as Thursday) there are discounts to be had all over New York City, from 60 percent off at Tibi to 30 percent off at Opening Ceremony. While the Rebecca Black spoof Kohl’s made to advertise their sale seems to suggest impending doom, it really doesn’t have to be that way. Plan a day of fun sale-ing with our handy guide to over 60 deals in the area and then go forth and spend.
