At one store, I was drawn to a lovely oak, curio cabinet. After spotting this item of furniture, I instantly knew I wanted to display my extensive doll collection in it.

Suggestions For Successfully Navigating Big Sales At Your Local Mall

by Eli Schmidt

When something is on sale at a local mall, you generally have no trouble walking in and buying the item. However, you'll want to take a slightly different approach for some of the major sales on the calendar each year, including those on Black Friday, Boxing Day, and other similar occasions. These days are among the best to shop in terms of getting deals, but you need to have a specific plan that you can execute in order to grab what you want. Hundreds or perhaps even thousands of other shoppers will also have their eyes on the items on sale, which may be limited in quantity. Here are some tips that you can use to successfully navigate these major sales.

Line Up Early

Perhaps the best chance that you can give yourself to buy your desired sale items during a major sale event is to arrive well before the shopping mall opens. You'll want to confirm the mall's hours on its website, rather than assume that it opens at 9 or 10 a.m. On these major sale days, many malls open much earlier to accommodate shoppers. There's no magic formula in terms of how early you should get there, but don't be opposed to the idea of arriving perhaps an hour or more before the mall opens and waiting outside. There will likely be other shoppers with this mindset, too, and you can converse with them while you wait.

Know Where To Go

The last thing that you want to do during a major sale event is to enter the mall and start to wonder where your desired items might be. Do some research in advance so that you can make a beeline for the correct areas as soon as you get inside. This means knowing the quickest route to the stores that you want to visit — something that you can learn by checking the mall's map online and printing it out if necessary — and even where the items might be. Door Crasher items tend to be positioned toward the front of the store, so don't run into a store without checking this area first.

Understand The Limits

During major sale events, many stores have limits on how many items a single shopper can purchase. This is for many reasons, including to avoid conflicts between shoppers. For example, if someone runs into a store and lays claim to 10 TVs, other shoppers might take issue. Make a list of what you want to buy and confirm whether these items are limited. If an item has a buying limit of one and you want two — perhaps one for yourself and one to give as a gift — recruit a family member or friend to visit the store to grab one of the items for you.
