3 Survival Tips for Wrentham Outlets Black Friday Sales

Black Friday sales at Wrentham Premium Outlets - and most other stores - can be huge, and crowds will be even bigger than usual.

Use these 3 tips to maximize your Wrentham Outlets Black Friday savings:

1.  Arrive early - Yes, this tip applies anywhere, not just at Wrentham Outlets.  However, keep in mind that Wrentham Outlets attracts shoppers from much farther distances than most Boston or suburban malls.  You'll be competing with them as well as with local shoppers.  So consider arriving really early - the day before - and staying in a local hotel near Wrentham Village for at least part of the night - much easier than driving from Boston in an semi-awake state.

2.  Prioritize to maximize your savings - Black Friday savings at Wrentham Outlets will be based on top of already-discounted merchandise, so you can expect to save a lot.  However, you'll typically find the biggest savings at the most expensive stores - so head there first.

3.  Don't stress:  arrive late - You can still save at Wrentham Outlets even if you miss out on the biggest Black Friday discounts.  If you want to avoid the biggest crowds but still scoop up some good bargains in time for the holiday season, consider coming later in the day.

Where to Eat & Drink at Wrentham Outlets
