At this point much of Madison Avenue is on presale or full sale. We started wondering, however, if our favorite department stores were offering any exciting Black Friday doorbusters. I guess the answer is that it all depends on the store. Below is a list of department stores and their Thanksgiving weekend promotions. If you see or hear about any additional promotions, let us know in the comment section and we will try to add it to the post.
"We don’t have specials for holidays," a costumer service rep told us on the phone, "but we are having a sale that will be running through the weekend." (How is that different than a holiday sale?! ) Whatever the you call a rose, the discount is 40% off select items.
Black Friday sales? "We don't do Black Friday," an uptight personal shopper spewed. We were also notified that "nothing is on sale." Well, except for "some 5th Floor vendors." Black Friday is just too Walmart for Bergdorf, huh?
The Brown Bag Sale is an additional 30% to 40% off select items. Designer handbags-- Furla, Marc Jacobs, MCM, Tory Burch etc.--are also an additional 30% to 40% off. Also, with each purchase over $100 you can earn a $15 bMony Card.
We love Saks because they always know how to run a sale and get shoppers excited for the holidays. From 8am until noon on Friday, shoppers can take an additional 40% off already reduced prices for a total savings of 50% to 60% off. Oh yeah!
Friday from 9am to noon, spend $100 anywhere in the store (except Chanel and Louis Vuitton) and receive a $50.00 gift card towards your next purchase (good thru 12/6).
