A Jamaican Black Friday?!

People! I discovered something this week that I must share with you. I don't know how many of you know about American Culture/History .... but the Firday after Thanksgiving ( November  27) is deemed as "Black Friday". ( November 28 ) Black Friday marks the first day of the official Christmas Shopping Season. There are crazy and I mean crazy discounts on everything. Usually after Thanksgiving Dinner, people camp out at their favorite stores for "Door Buster" deals which start as early as 6.a.m and last year I went to one at hhgregg that started at 12 a.m ( the people dem nearly kill mi ... lawd god ) but that's an entire story.

I am happy to report that Jamaica being as "innovative" as we are, have decided to have our very own Black Friday.... this is actually year 5! From November 27 to November 29 stores in The Village & Mall Plaza and Rapid True Value in Half Way Tree in collaboration with National Commercial Bank ( NCB ), The Gleaner Company , Power 106 and Music 99Fm will be having crazy discounts. Haute People will of course be there ( if nothing comes up ) to capture this Shopping Extravaganza . Some of the things I recommend splurging on are of course Electronics, Perfumes , Jewelry , Handbag and Household items. For clothing , I find that here in Jamaica when stores have these specials , they tend to put out of season clothing ... then think of a clever way to get you to pay the full price ( in a way ) while having you think that you got a great bargain. There will still be a few good pieces you can find .. but you will have to hunt! Keep your eyes open and wear comfortable shoes.

Opening hours

The official opening hours of The Village and Mall Plazas and Rapid True Value Store for the Black Friday Weekend Sale are:

• Thursday, November 27: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

• Friday & Saturday, November 28 & 29: 8 a.m.-8 p.m.

• Early-Bird specials - Friday & Saturday: 8 a.m.-10 a.m
