Black Friday use to be a big sale phenomenon just for our American friends. When we were younger, friends would take a drive across the border to partake in some of the not to be missed deals. Then, we began seeing the biggest shopping day (now week) happening here in Canada. Why not? While Black Friday traditionally follows the American Thanksgiving, it’s a perfect time to get a jump start on holiday shopping and take advantage of offers. But also don’t forget about Cyber Monday! So, what’s on my radar?

Beginning on November 24, KNIX will be hosting their third virtual warehouse sale. This year, Knix is combining the Warehouse sale with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Serious deals to be had. Last fall, their warehouse sale sold over 85,000 pairs of underwear in one day alone, making it the best sales day in Knix history. Look for savings of up to 50% site wide. Also includinded in the sale will be the latest collaboration with designer Anna Sui. Visit knix.ca for details.
