First comes Thanksgiving, then comes Black Friday, NYC’s biggest shopping day of the year. You’ve watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, stuffed your face with turkey—the only thing left to do this holiday weekend? Shop. You can assume most stores will have COVID-19 safety protocols in place this year, such as limiting how many people will be allowed in the building at once and requiring masks, but there will be loads of shopping. Those of us willing to brave the early hours for a shopping bonanza, look to these stores to plan out your Black Friday.
