Black Friday Shopping at Side Step

Planning is everything and we’ve got some great ways for you to get the most from Black Friday shopping.



Make a wish list

Got your eye on the latest kicks from Nike, The North Face or adidas Original? Are you ready to update your wardrobe with on-trend tees from ellesse or perfectly fitting jeans from Nautic Spirit? Make a list of all the things you’re after so that you know what to go for the moment you enter the store. Having a list is a focused approach, it saves you time and money and makes for a more enjoyable experience. It will also prevent you from buying stuff you don’t actually need or won’t end up wearing. You can go one step further and split your list into priorities - you know, go for gold first!

Start planning early

The earlier the better. Besides making your wish list, find out the trading hours of the store, what their return or exchange policy is. These can save you a lot of headaches going forward. Plan a strategy for online and offline shopping so that you don’t miss out on any deals. Decide how much you are willing to spend and stick to your budget. Carrying cash is a good way to prevent overspending but we also caution you of the risk. Wear comfortable shoes - you’ll be on your feet for a while. Travel light (you’ll need arm room for bags). And leave the kids at home to prevent distraction while you shop.



Avoid the hype

Finally, it’s good to remember that there is a lot of hype around this shopping day. People go crazy for sales. There will be long lines and a lot of mayhem in the stores. It’s easy to get carried away and buy whatever you can get your hands on before it’s snapped up by someone else. This is where your wish list and budget come into play. Stick to your plan and you’ll get the best shopping experience.
