Black Friday Sales on 34th Street: The Top 15 List

Black Friday has come early this year with some stores already dropping deals. But Friday, and in some cases Thursday, will feature even bigger discounts and incentives in stores. We've put together a list to help you figure out where and when to shop Black Friday on 34th Street. Below are our top fifteen picks for the year's biggest shopping holiday on 34th Street (in no particular order). The list may be updated through the week. Happy holidays, and happy holiday shopping!

#1. Macy's Herald Square
Click here for a Black Friday specials preview. There will be doorbusters and morning specials. And if you haven't shopped Macy's in the middle of the night during the Black Friday frenzy, take it from someone who has been there: it is a blast! Below Macy's has kindly shared with us their #BlackFriday survival kit. Take their advice and stick to the Keds.

Bebe is "Bringing Sexy Black Friday" this week and they aren't kidding! When you've got dresses like this on sale, who's arguing?! Stop by on your 34th Street Black Friday route for the best skinny pants, cute quilted vests, and yes, sexy dresses. They are being very coy about their Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday specials: "You have to come in and see," they purred. I'm thinking that's a good thing.
