Sears Black Friday
YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Yes! Sears has participated in Black Friday for years now, and last year they even celebrated it twice: once in late November, and once in October after Canadian Thanksgiving.
This fall, we expect Sears to follow the same pattern they did last year: a double set of sales! Celebrate with the rest of the world on November 24th or take advantage of the exclusively Canadian event starting October 5th. For both cases, we expect the deals to last for the whole weekend.
Each option has its pros and cons, but we have generally found the Black Friday deals are better online, both because of the greater availability of products and the longer sales period, especially once you factor in the online-only deals we see on Cyber Monday.
At Sears, the sale stretches out over the whole weekend. You can order online or shop in person. Generally we’ll be able to find out about a few of the top deals in advance so you can plan out your shopping.
