Before you finish your last bite of Thanksgiving Turkey, Black Friday—NYC’s biggest shopping day of the year—will already be in full swing. Sure, some stores will remain closed out of respect for the holiday. But others are offering deals days in advance to offset the shipping delay madness. If you’re a traditionalist and plan to shop in person the day after Thanksgiving, this list of stores will certainly have the deals and steals you’re jonesing for. Like last year, it’s safe to assume most stores will have COVID-19 safety protocols in place. For those willing to brave the crowds and the early hours for a shopping bonanza, look to these stores and start planning your route. (Might we suggest hitting the ones near the best coffee shops in NYC first?) If you don’t shop until you drop, check out some of the best things to do in NYC on Black Friday at major New York attractions.
