Thanksgiving means spending time with family and friends, reflecting on all the blessings in your life, and getting ready for BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING! At Palio’s, we care about our customers, so we have taken the time to come up with a list of a few tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your Black Friday experience!
Make a Plan of Attack
The first thing you need to do is check the ads and figure out what stores are your priority. Depending on what you are shopping for will determine how early you need to be there and the type of crowd to expect. Check circulars, websites, social media pages, and pay attention to the commercials to see what types of deals are out there!
Once you know what stores you want to hit up, route your day out. Determine what the best order is to visit the locations and save yourself from driving all over the place. Some stores will open early or stay open late to accommodate the crowds. If you are concerned with the items you want selling out, it is best to hit the stores that carry those particular items first.
Staying organized is key when it comes to Black Friday shopping. On a day where chaos overtakes most department stores, it is important that you keep on top of everything you have and want. It is best to make a list of items and where to find them before you begin. It is very easy to check things off as you purchase them. This will help you make sure you do not forget anything.
On a day where you will be pushing through crowds and standing in long lines, it is smart to have a snack on hand. To help you keep your energy up and from fatigue getting the best of you, a snack will come in handy.
As annoying as dealing with crowds may be, we all benefit from being kind to one another. Try not to let frustration get the best of you and cause you to take your anger out on those around you. While getting the best deal on a product is nice, it is not worth losing your self-respect over.
Fuel Up at Palio’s
Black Friday shopping is a big undertaking, make sure you stay fueled up! We are talking about both your vehicle and your body on this one. Make sure you get gas for your car before you begin driving around to the different sales. Also, stop by Palio’s for lunch to make sure you have plenty of energy to handle even the biggest of crowds.
