Black Friday preps at Premium Outlets
While many are preparing to cut the turkey, others are buy cutting coupons ahead of Black Friday deals across the Coast.
Holiday shopping is becoming more and more of a tradition for families on Thanksgiving. Best Buy is preparing for a long line of customers eager to take advantage of low prices on high-end electronics such as TVs and laptops.
The Gulfport Premium Outlets plans to extend its regular hours throughout the holiday weekend. It’s also transitioning to a more digital-friendly shopping experience to make the Black Friday rush less hectic for everyone. Rhonda Roberts with Gulfport Premium Outlets said, “We’re doing our VIP savings passport coupon book digital. So people will be able to go in to the premium outlets site, log in on the VIP club, and then they just show their offers on their phone. So we just want to make it very convenient for them. We’ve been testing it for the past couple of months and shoppers love it.”
