Black Friday Deals in Canada??

I seem to remember a few stores in Canada with black Friday deals last year. Yes, I know our Thanksgiving was a month ago. But I just thought I'd ask if anyone knows of anything happening here in Canada for the Friday after the American Thanksgiving.

According to DSis, who used to work in Sears in Ont., 'official Christmas shopping' starts on Nov. 11 in the afternoon--when the Remembrance Day ceremonies are over.

The Black Friday thing is not so much of an issue in Canada. You may find some deals online (?), but I wouldn't expect any in a brick and mortar store, any more than I would look for Boxing Day sales in the U.S., KWIM?

Before visiting the DIS online, I never heard of BF.

I know what you mean. Yet last year, I'm sure, there were black Friday sales in Canada to urge people not to to to USA but to shop here.

I remember the ads as well! I have never gone black Friday shopping, I always go the weekend before BF, less crazy, still some good deals! Not the knock everyone over, and stay up all night in lines, in cold deals, but decent shopping for what I was looking for!

Lots of marketing and promotions in our local malls, plazas, Big Box stores, etc. They've been advertising for weeks now.

Not sure about stores here but keep a watch online. Even with the shipping it can sometimes be worth your while. This year I am thinking I will brave the lines in the U.S. (I live on the border) as I'm looking for a good deal on a Dyson vacuum!

I heard a radio announcement that the malls (I am in Toronto) are going to be open late on BF.

First, a Dyson will change your life! Amazing, love it.

But to note, when I bought mine, Dyson was in the group that when you take it over the border, the warranty becomes void. Because a Dyson perk is its long warranty, that might be something you want to consider. I would call them and see if that is still their policy before you buy it in the US!

Seriously, I had never heard of BF before joining the DIS. We don't live near a border. I think we are about two hours from the closest U.S. border, and even further from Southwestern Ontario.

I am not one for 'retail therapy', but I don't recall ever seeing any local BF ads. I am more on the lookout for good Boxing Day and January sales, as I have very few Christmas presents to buy.

Don't forget to also watch and scout around for Black Friday airline deals. One of my friends got a fantastic deal on flights for four to Paris over March break.

Thanks, I will check into that! I usually don't worry too much about that as I would ship it back through the U.S. and hasn't been a problem - but will definitely check.

Good luck! Either way, you'll definitely love the Dyson!
