Expect the crowd to invade Union square downtown San Francisco and beyond this Friday, November 26th 2016!



As everyone knows in the United States, Black Friday is the kick off day for the Christmas shopping season. It is the following day after Thanksgiving Day, and a holiday for many people in California (not for retailers' enployees obviously!).

On this particular day, people all over America chase the big sales announced by major American department stores. The deals will go on during the week-end but the best deals might be gone... 


In order to avoid your family shopping day to turn into a frantic black comedy, and missing great deals, you can also buy online. Most major American stores will offer the same great deals on their website. Some websites like online shopping giant Amazon are offering deals before Black Friday, and up until Cyber Monday. Fierce competition for retailers and shoppers alike!


If you are a sales addict, you can plan your shopping in advance and select the items you do not want to miss thanks to the Official Black Friday website


To escape the crowd, you have a great selection of free shopping apps to download on your Android or Iphone, giving you the option to search by stores, categories, keywords and deals, featuring pictures of the items, to compare prices (Shopsavvy, Brad's Deals, Fat Wallet, SlickDeals...)

Many retailers have also launched their apps promising exclusive deals for app users (Sears, Wal-Mart, Macy's...).

Your smartphone may be your best tool to save money and avoid long lines and crowded stores!




Follow your wishlist, be patient, and get organized to spare you some great frustrations! Enjoy your shopping!
