Black Friday is quickly approaching and students at York College can’t wait for the numerous sales at their favorite retail stores. Students usually have the ability to start or finish their holiday shopping or buy merchandise for themselves thanks to Black Friday sales. One of the more popular stores amongst college students is Forever 21.

With Forever 21’s already reasonable and affordable priced clothes, students can’t wait to visit a location and go shopping on Black Friday.

“I literally have so many things that I want to get that I can’t even think of all of them right now” York student Bria Van Cooten said.

Forever 21 employee Emily Crawford also agrees with Van Cooten and adds that she plans on purchasing outfits to wear for 2016. She also said that finding an outfit for Christmas and New Years is an absolute must on her things to get and suggest that all shoppers will have a good chance to find outfits to purchase.

“Customers will find and put together any kind of outfits that will go with any type of event that they attend at very affordable prices” said Crawford.

Frequent customers who receive email promotions have already gotten a taste of the type of sales Forever 21 offers and what they can expect once Black Friday has arrived.

In order to prepare for the biggest sales of the year, Forever 21 plans on making its schedules in advance to notify its employees on their Black Friday schedule. Forever 21 also plans on hiring security the day of the event in order to supervise the multitude of customers that will go about their holiday shopping.

“All employees will be working that day to ensure that every section of the store is supervised and maintained” Visual Manager Piara Diaz says. Forever 21 plans on creating signage deals to increase sales.

Some of these Black Friday sales include deals starting as low as $3. To increase the chance of getting better deals and coupons, customers can use apps like Groupon or websites such as coupons.com and dealplus.com. Customers can even get a 10% off coupon code just by signing up for newsletter alerts from Forever 21 through their website.

“They’re will be giveaways at our location,” Forever 21 Store Manager Melanie Rodriguez says “Were making sure employees will be dressed in presentable fashion and assist customers with anything they need.” Forever 21 plans to open its doors at 9am.
