Bag the best bargains and an exciting city break with Black Friday Shopping in New York

Bag the best bargains and an exciting city break with Black Friday Shopping in New York


Cheapest flights & Top Tips from e-travel


Black Friday in New York is the biggest discount shopping day of the year and this year it falls on November 28th. This is the time when it is common for shoppers to expect sales of up to 80% off of regular prices! It only takes place once a year and falls on the day after Thanksgiving Day. Shopping havens such as Macy's, Bloomingdales, Sax & Tiffany & Co are on sale at their lowest prices of the year and it’s the only day of the year that Apple stores give discounts.  Over 100,000 Irish shoppers are expected to make this retail pilgrimage to enjoy the thrill and excitement of finding the world’s finest designer labels at outrageous discounts! 


But the city that never sleeps has lots more to offer than just shopping.  By day, visit spectacular sights like the Statue of Liberty, the haunting halls of Ellis Island, Central Park, the Empire State Building, world famous museums and galleries or go Ice Skating at Rockefeller Plaza.  By night, Time Square will take your breath away and is as bustling at 2am as it is as 2pm.  The city is a nocturnal playground full of restaurants, bars, Broadway shows and has an energy that is unlike any other city in the world.


e-travel have great offers this year for Christmas shopping trips with return flights from €415 per person and hotels in Manhattan starting from €206 per person for 4 nights. There is also some great cruise and stay options available with a selection of cruises out of New York to Bermuda and the Caribbean or really push the boat out and for a trip of a lifetime, take the magnificent Queen Mary transatlantic back to South Hampton.  Just imagine how exhilarating it would be to shop till you drop and soak up all the excitement of the Big Apple. Then leave the towering skyscrapers behind and set sail out past the Statue of Liberty to the Atlantic Sea as you indulge in gourmet meals and lazy afternoons finished with magenta sunsets.


Top Tips for a Black Friday Shopping Success


Regardless of your shopping goals, the key to a successful New York Black Friday haul is good planning and an early start. The options are dizzying, so e-travel have some top tips:


·         For fashionistas, SoHo is very busy late in the day but mornings are not as crazy. Most of the neighborhood's smaller boutiques open around 9 a.m. and generally feature great discounts. Don't forget to have a look at the SoHo Antique Fair and Flea Market while you're downtown.


·         For a highbrow taste: Tiffany, Barney's, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman all open early. You can find these stores grouped fairly close together in Midtown East in the upper 50s. After your shopping day concludes, be sure to enjoy a well-earned cocktail somewhere in the neighborhood


·         For the consummate midtown Manhattan experience, line up with hundreds of locals and tourists alike outside Macy's flagship Herald Square store before its usual 6 a.m. opening. (The queue gets going well before dawn.)


·         For electronics enthusiasts, Circuit City and Best Buy have multiple Manhattan locations. Both will compete for the most outrageous Black Friday technology deals and can open as early as 5 a.m. In year's past, early bird shoppers have plucked $100 laptops and free digital cameras

  1. Just a question, are the hotel rates on Black Friday cheaper or more expensive? My hotel website didn't show any differences or deals on that particular day but I'm pretty interested how things in NYC happen. Thanks!
