What is Black Friday?

The so-called “Black Friday” always takes place on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This was so called because from this day onwards the shops will be in the black for the first time in the year and from then on they will make a profit from the Christmas business.

It's worth a trip to the Woodbury Outlet

Post from a Facebook group

In Woodbury and New Jersey Gardes Outlet the shops open from midnight, you should plan at least an extra hour for the trip itself, as many people make the pilgrimage to the mall and the traffic is jammed. Parking spaces are rarely found at the mall itself; you will have to park your vehicle a little outside and take a shuttle to the mall from there.

If you decide to take the bus from Manhattan to Woodbury, remember that seats are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis based on arrival time or book on our website, where you are guaranteed seats.

The shops themselves offer good bargains, around 10-15% more than usual, but there are queues in front of the shops and at the checkouts, so you have to plan for long waiting times. Remember to dress warmly, especially if you choose Woodbury .

It's worth a trip to the New Jersey Garden Malls

On Black Friday, The Mills at Jersey Gardens will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Black Friday prices are reduced by up to 50%, depending on the brand and shop. You can read how to get there here .

Empire Outlets Staten Island

First the most important question. It's worth the drive there! You can take the Staten Island Ferry to the mall, which is free. The selection is rather small, the most famous shops there are Nike Factory Store and Levi's Outlet.

Hudson Yards - New York's new glamor piece is open from 10am. Here you will find high-end designers as well as H&M and other similar stores.

My advice

If you are there two or three days in advance, do your shopping. Prices will not change significantly on Black Friday. This saves you the crowds and gives you a larger selection.

The Mills at Jersey Gardens

You can shop particularly cheaply and conveniently in the outlets outside the city. For example, in New Jersey, The Mills at Jersey Gardens , about 40 minutes from Manhattan . You can read how to get there here.
