With retail sales down across the board, it's no surprise that plenty of companies are trying to lure shoppers in during the crucial Thanksgiving/Black Friday period. The Gap and Old Navy are opening some of their locations on normally-closed Thanksgiving Day, and other brands are trying to lure customers with special Black-Friday-specific sales. Beauty brand Crabtree & Evelyn has even created a special Black Friday "Weekender" collection, an 18-piece set that includes an overnight tote, a fleece robe, and a variety of hand and body creams. It runs for $150 and is a really good mom or aunt gift.
If you miss your chance to purchase the special Black Friday set or get major agoraphobia from crowded malls, C&E is also offering free shopping for anything you buy on Cyber Monday.
