RVA Deals: A guide to Black Friday, Richmond-style

Two more days until the zaniest shopping day of the year. We’re taking a break from the groceries this week to give you the 411 on the best Black Friday deals in Richmond.

Shopping Centers:

Prime Outlets Williamsburg kicks off BF shopping with a Midnight Madness Pajama Jam:

Be one of the first 500 people in line and in your PJs at the Midnight Madness Pajama Jam Tent – located on the walkway between Skechers and Burberry- and receive a free gift bag including special edition Jockey sleepwear (while supplies last)! What’s more, lucky shoppers may also find a Prime Outlets gift card tucked away in their free gift bags as well!

Here’s a PDF file listing all the “Madness” deals to be had. You must bring a printout to get your free gift bag.

Free Black Friday Survival Tote to the first 500 shoppers at Short Pump Town Center Guest Services starting Friday at 8am. Contains samples, coupons, deals, plus $5,000 in gift cards given away.

And here’s the scoop on Black Friday opening hours at Chesterfield Towne Center.

Local Retailers:

Posh Belly Boutique – 30% off on Friday starting at 10am, drops to 25% off at noon, 20% off at 2pm, and 15% off at 4pm (1350 Gaskins Road, Richmond)

Once Upon A Child – 30% off entire store on Friday (Both Richmond locations- Southside: 9770 Midlothian Turnpike, West End: 8030 West Broad St)

Frame Nation – 20% off Framed Art, Saturday 10am to 4pm (11 South 15th St, Richmond)

Green Top Sporting Goods – Thursday’s Times-Dispatch will have a Press pass discount plus a Press Pass Coupon for a free item, valid on Friday, November 27 only

National Deals:

Oodles of Black Friday resources are available to aid in planning-

BFads.net – Lots of adscans
AFullCup.com and Slickdeals.net – Black Friday discussion forums
Thanksgiving Day Times-Dispatch ($2 if you’re not a home subscriber, free if you are)

Opening hours and links to ads for a few Black Friday “biggies”-

Best Buy – Doorbuster pricing begins at 5am, with tickets handed out beginning at 3am

Sears – opens at 4am

Target – opens at 5am

Toys R Us – open starting at midnight (!)

Walmart – opens at 5am

I prefer shopping some of the less-popular stores, starting at the more-reasonable hour of 6 a.m. Usually I collect a free gift card or two, and take advantage of “X% off entire store” sales.

Free Drinks (All that shopping works up a thirst!):

Free hot chocolate for first 200 at Chesterfield Towne Center Guest Services, starting at 10am (coupon from Coffee Beanery).

Printable coupon for free medium soda from Target on Friday, November 27th and Saturday, November 28th.

Check Thursday’s Times-Dispatch for a Press Pass coupon for a free medium Café Blends coffee (or medium beverage of your choice) from Chick-fil-A.
