Place d’Orléans Brings Black Friday North

There is a growing tradition at shopping centers just north of the US border: Black Friday, following hot on the heels of the day Canada doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving. It’s the best way to combat cross-border shopping and have a great time in the doing.

Place d’Orléans is among the early adopters of the ultimate shopping holiday, and it’s doing it up right. The center will open early with promotions, sales, and all the best door crashers. Plenty of Canadian retailers already plan big Black Friday sales, so it’s a match made in heaven.

“Black Friday is only just catching on here — but there’s something very compelling about the idea of a day that kicks off the holiday shopping season,” says Caroline Joanisse, Marketing Manager at Place d’Orléans. “It’s a great segue into our extended holiday hours, which start the next day.”

The festivities start at 8 a.m., two pairs of Justin Bieber tickets to be won and with door crasher specials until noon. Folks who want to sleep in won’t be left out in the cold, though. From noon until 5pm, the center will be refunding all taxes paid with gift cards. General discounts extend all the way until closing.

Place d’Orléans also plans to have its Fashion Vlogger on hand giving a live account of all the best deals on both Twitter and Facebook.
