The most wonderful time of the year is coming. And no, it’s not Christmas.
It’s the most hallowed day for any shopaholic or frugal penny pincher. Yes, folks, it’s Black Friday. Or, dare we say it, Black Friday Week.
While we may have borrowed the ‘holiday’ off our American friends, it’s now one of the biggest sale days of the calendar year. Since adopting the annual shopping extravaganza, it’s become clear that there are four distinct types of Black Friday shoppers.
If you spot yourself below then congratulations, you’re the ultimate Black Friday-lover.
They’re making the most of the deals to get ahead on their Christmas shopping (or because that one shirt that they’ve had their eye on all year is finally reduced at David Jones). Don’t even think about asking them if they want to window shop or grab a coffee in the food court.
They know what they want and they’re gonna get it, (like nabbing their 50% off Calvin Klein underwear in under 25 minutes). Chadstone has 40% off deals at Converse and JD Sports this Black Friday week, (until Monday the 28th of November) so you can nab a pair of trainers while you’re running in and out of the store.
Black Friday is their Christmas. They’re spreading the gospel weeks before Black Friday in order to help their friends and family get the best deals. They definitely buy more than they need to but hey, “It was $100 off!”. They love IRL shopping in order to try everything on and mark off stores like a checklist. Spot them stocking up on legacy brands including North Face, Sunglass Hut, and Le Creuset, which has up to 40% off its cult pots and pans from the 21st of November. Looking for some new activewear for the post-Christmas fitness motivation? LSKD has up to 70% off all Black Friday Week-long at Chadstone.
They can spend hours (slowly) walking from shop to shop. They’ll stop in at Hoyts, grab a Boost Juice and Daniel’s Donuts in between shopping every sale and wondering if their best friend’s mum’s cousin needs a new necklace from Pandora. Spot them cruising around Sass & Bide and INCU this Black Friday. Sass & Bide is slinging 25% off storewide from the 24th of November while INCU has 30% off selected lines from the same date at Chadstone.
Meanderers have to shop with other meanderers. If you get a meanderer and a sale-lover together? Pfft. You may as well say that a gemini and a scorpio can be friends because WOW are they incompatible.
The Bougie Boutique Babe
This person loooves the finer things in life. However, like most of us, they’re on a budget that doesn’t always favour their extra style. On Black Friday, spot them in the more expensive stores like Coach, Longchamp and Bally getting their fashion fix. Chadstone has ‘uge sales happening in these stores (and a tonne more) including up to 50% off so get in line, boutique babes.
