Black Friday Shopping in Vancouver

The holidays are upon us and as our neighbours to the south prepare for their own Thanksgiving, there’s one special day for any shopper out there that’s circled and marked on the calendar: Black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving in America is called Black Friday because, similar to our Boxing Day, retailers offer deep discounts to move massive amounts of stock hoping to jump “in the black” in their books after operating at a financial loss throughout the year.

Black Friday is November 29, 2013 and Canadian retailers are taking advantage of the trend including several shopping hot spots around Vancouver. Here’s a quick guide to help you navigate all of the deals, discounts, and specials in your local shopping district or shopping centre:

Vancouver’s Black Friday Weekend

Black Friday Promotion Dates/Times
Friday, November 29, 2013 to December 1st, 2013 – various locations

Vancouver’s Black Friday Weekend begins with a promotion between 12 different Vancouver neighbourhoods which have collaborated to create a one-stop online guide to Black Friday deals around town. As early as November 27th, shoppers can learn about discounts, offers, giveaways and events at businesses and stores that will be available on Black Friday and for three days over that weekend. Check out Vancouver’s Black Friday Weekend website.

  1. i’m just sayin’

    The best deals are still south! 50% off a Canadian price is nothing like 60% off a US price. Pays for the gas/hotel/food and then some!

  2. AG

    I can’t access the full post on any platform. Andriod, pc, chrome, IE.
    PLEASE FIX

  3. Show me the $aving$

    Anyone know where I can get a steal-of-a-deal on an I-Pod north of the 49th parallel?

  4. Great post,Everyone want to save money on their favorite products when doing online shopping.online shopping is much easier to score great deals and low prices online than in the department stores. it take the less time and also allows consumers to do their shopping when it is most convenient for them, even very late at night or early in the morning.it is much easier to quickly compare prices between stores while browsing online than having to go between physical locations.
