Black Friday Canadian Style

For those that don't know, Black Friday is an American tradition of sorts where stores hold sales with heavy discounts and bargains on the Friday of American thanksgiving. I don't really understand the concept, since Thanksgiving should be a time spent with family instead of fighting people for the newest Elmo, but hey to each their own. We thankfully are now able to benefit from these deals as Canadian retailers are fighting to prevent Canadian shoppers from heading across the border for American deals. Black Friday falls on November 23rd this year.
Check out the hours for malls near year, but it has been reported that Cadillac Fairview malls in Canada will be opening early on Black Friday with the Eaton's Centre opening at 6am while 8 other Cadillac malls will be opening at 7am.

One of my favourite websites (that I have been neglecting lately) is Red Flag Deals. They have a section specifically covering Black Friday. Check out that section of their website here. This not only covers Black Friday deals but Cyber Monday deals as well (predominantly online sales).

Black Friday is a great time to stock up on Christmas presents so it's definitely something you should keep in mind.

Make sure to check the Red Flag Deals page, its a great source for Black Friday sales and promotions and is updated quite frequently. I will also be retweeting deals on Twitter so make sure follow @cheapstudents
