Black Friday has become an event for both retailers and eager shoppers. This annual “shoppers’ holiday” has morphed into a nationwide phenomenon. With the fantastic shopping options in the South Florida area, there is a plethora of opportunity for awesome deals. This “best of” list features exciting options in South Florida for Black Friday deals. The multi-unit retail complexes are ideal because of their structure – a large number of retail stores with most (if not all) eagerly offering huge discounts. As the number of shoppers grow every year, so does the premise of Black Friday for retailers to get “in the black.”

Sawgrass Mills Mall

Sunrise, FL 33323

With over 300 stores stretching across more than two million square feet of land, Black Friday deals are in abundance. Sawgrass Mills is widely known for its everyday deals as it is an outlet mall. On Black Friday, the savings are so enormous, it’s almost impossible to choose which stores to visit first. The options cover everything from clothing to home furnishings and include small boutiques and large department stores. Shoppers looking for department-store deals can find what they’re looking for at the J.C. Penney Outlet, Marshalls or even Super Target. For brand-name-specific shopping, patrons can visit stores like the Nike Factory Store and Bed, Bath & Beyond. Last year, Sawgrass Mills Mall was open for 24 consecutive hours for Black Friday.
