hi guys, quick question. I'm off to NY and will be there for Thanksgiving, will the shops be trading as usual seeing that it's a holiday? Thanks in advance!

Hey they will not be open on the thursday of thanksgiving, but will be open the day after which is the biggest shopping day of year. Its known as black friday and let me tell you NYC will be like a bloody zoo. Good Luck and enjoy the bargain hunting :D

black friday is heaven we were there last year the sales do last for a bit after it though. on thanksgiving itself a lot of the tourist stuff and bars and resturants are open and a lot of the shops open at five am the following morning for the sales.

sales in the outlets are fantastic too but if possible hire a car and go first thing in the morning saves on the carrying of bags and for us was somewhere for hubby to be to sit and read his book when i refused to leave! lasted from nine in the morning till four in the pm on one coffee and a bottle of water! forgot to eat (not like me at all) enjoy i'm very jealous now

Yeah the black friday is really the end of the fall/autum gear and the launching of the winter clothing. So although there are sales still on the sat and sunday they will not be as good as the friday. Its madness, the stores really open at 4 and 5 am.....madness!! Enjoy yourself, and the wedding you wil have a ball.
