Unlikely markdowns: Luxury apparel
Luxury items don't tend to be discounted during Black Friday, de Grandpre says.
"You don't hear a lot from Saks on Black Friday sales," he says. Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus aren't really promoting door-busters, either.
High-end department store outlets, such as Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Last Call by Neiman Marcus or Barneys Warehouse, could be the best places to shop for designer deals, according to DealNews. Last year, for example, there was a surge in sales from these retailers, with Black Friday deals beginning as early as the day before Thanksgiving. Most retailers also offer free shipping on Black Friday.
