Can you believe it is already the end of November? How this has happened I have no idea but I’m excited to start getting settled down for the holidays. The Gilmore Girls revival season launches on Netflix – seems like the perfect timing to pick a new smart tv or computer to binge-watch the full six hours of Gilmore goodness. Couple all of that with delicious snacks and you’ve got a perfect weekend ahead of you.
As the kickoff to Black Friday sales rapidly approach, London Drugs is opening a brand-new location right here in Calgary in the northwest neighbourhood of Sage Hill. I had the opportunity to preview the new store as well as some of the AMAZING Black Friday deals launching tomorrow and I was seriously impressed.
The Sage Hill location is literally a one-stop shop providing an amazing shopping experience for everything you need from cosmetics to tech to computers to pharmacy. The pharmacy is massive and I can see it being a great health hub for the folks in Sage Hill and neighbouring communities. I even got my flu shot while I was getting the tour of the store. That means I helped give a lifesaving vaccine to immunize children in a developing country because for every flu shot administer at London Drugs, a vaccination is donated to UNICEF Canada.
Some of the really cool aspects of the store include a Learning Lab where London Drugs will host their own workshops on topics such as health and wellness to technology and sustainability. One of the great things about this space is that it will actually be available for use by local community groups, educators and experts to host their own events or workshops. I love how they are opening it up to the community and providing a welcoming space!
Okay, now to my favourite part – the amazing Black Friday sales! London Drugs has extremely competitive pricing even against US retailers – you are going to find some incredible deals in store that you won’t be able to find anywhere else. While browsing the store and the advanced preview of the sale I found some seriously incredible deals. You can pick everything from ethical coffee beans for great prices to all of your essentials and home needs to last you through the holidays into the new year. You can view the entire Black Friday flyer here.
I found some truly stand out items while browsing around however – I know each one of these will be a huge hit for this Black Friday.
First off the KitchenAid Pro 600 Series 6 Quart Stand Mixer is on sale for an unheard of price! Only $295.99, down from over $700. An unbelievable deal that makes a great Christmas to your favourite baker or for yourself!
Another great deal that I’ve been drooling over is the SONY A6000B Kit with 16-50mm Lens. The camera is on sale for $729.97 for Black Friday only and is an excellent deal for anyone wanting a fantastic lightweight camera that takes amazing photos.
I am a huge fan of the Sodastream Jet Mega Pack so when I saw that the Jet Mega Pack is on sale for $59.99 I made a mental note to pick up one for everyone in my family – such an incredible deal for something that actually saves you a ton of money over the year.
If you love Fitbit you won’t want to miss the savings on two models this year! The Fitbit Alta is on sale for $129.95 and the Fitbit Flex2 Fitness Tracker is on sale for $99.95. Both great options for anyone wanting to up their fitness for the new year!
