The best things to buy on Black Friday
Unlikely to be marked down: 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, Last Call offered 40 percent off already-discounted merchandise, as well as free shipping on all orders.
As for non-designer clothing, DealNews is predicting that retailers will once again offer their best discounts of the year online, based on 2012 trends.
