Hello fashion lovers. 

Today we are going to tell you about Black Friday in Winnipeg, which is our sophisticated, chicer, and equally deal-savvy version of what you’ll find stateside – particularly at Outlet Collection Winnipeg (OC Winnipeg). 

Forget those scenes of pandemonium as shoppers nearly trample one another for flat screens and instead envision yourself casually strolling through 400,000 sq/ft. of stylish retail space, taking in the heights of fashion from 100 brands and trying to play it cool in the face of deals of up to 50 percent off.  

That’s right! OC Winnipeg, the city’s “first and only fashion outlet,” is the place to be on November 24 for those of you looking for tremendous deals in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere – a shopping experience that is so classy they even have a coat check. 

Here’s the gist. 

The shopping atmosphere at OC Winnipeg is second to none (Outlet Collection Winnipeg)

For you keeners, doors will open right at 7 a.m., meaning there’s ample time to find the best deals.

Once you’ve flexed your purchasing power, head to the very centre of the mall where you’ll find the info booth. There, the first 100 people to present receipts valued at over $250 from any of the retailers will get a sweet swag bag!

As well, you can also win some primetime prizes in the Black Friday Finds lounge, which will be manned by 102 KiSS, 103.1 Virgin Radio, and Energy 106. 

And what about those deals? 

How does 50 per cent off the entire Michael Kors store sound for starters? That’s right fellas! If you are looking to win Christmas morning then now’s the time to get that purse for the missus, while for you fashionistas out there, there’s no need for us to explain how big of a deal this is. 

For more fashions, be sure to hit up Saks off 5th and Browns, where red ticket items and sale merchandise will also be 50 per cent off, while at Dynamite – Garage’s sophisticated older sister – you can get some luxurious looks together all for 40 per cent off. 

You can also treat your feet to deals up to 20 per cent off at Quarks, while OC Winnipeg has countless other sporty shoe retailers, including Nike, Under Armour and more. 

In the market for bags or boots? Call it Spring is offering 40 per cent off all sale merchandise. 

For stocking stuffers and products that will help your skin ward off winter’s chill check out the Body Shop, where all gifts will be 40 per cent off.

It’s also the best time to buy those big ticket items. If an engagement ring (‘tis the season) or some show-stopping bling is on the agenda, check out Michael Hill – where the entire store will be 40 per cent off. 

Many of the OC Winnipeg’s retailers will be celebrating Black Friday all weekend long while operating hours will be extended, including 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the 24th, then 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the 25th and 26th respectively. 

To top it all off, you have the peachy experience that shopping at OCW always entails. 

They really thought of it all at this place, including countless services in the Nursing Lounge for new moms like bottle warming and complimentary emergency diaper kits; free WiFi and phone charging stations; complimentary motorized scooter and smartcarte strollers (on a first-come, first-served basis); a damn fine food court with furniture that you’d expect in an executive airport lounge #soplush; and of course, the aforementioned coat check, which comes in so handy during the winter. 

So get your shopping crew ready for the 24th. Because Black Friday at OC Winnipeg is going to be a beauty.
