'Tis the year that retailers have finally realized that people don't mind gathering 'round the turkey and feasting with their loved ones while sneakily shopping all of the pre-Black Friday sales online on their phones from beneath the table (aka Thanksgiving). For those who prefer to brave the mall madness this Grey Thursday and Black Friday, we've once again put together a game plan for you brave souls.
From the Beverly Center's sponsored parking to random acts of kindness at Third Street Promenade, check out our survival guide to LA and OC shopping centers below. Note that Nordstrom, H&M, Uniqlo, and REI have opted to keep their doors closed on Thursday, while Macy's and Target are opening at 6pm that day.
We'll be updating this list as more details roll in, so check back often. Looking for Black Friday bargains? Stay tuned—we'll have all of that soon.
