Most people have their favorite stores and have Black Friday planned days if not weeks in advance. When researching places to go and where to find the best deals, make sure you’re not buying anything that might be cheaper elsewhere. WalletHub recently published a list of The best places to shop this Black Friday, and they’ve broken it down on where to buy specific types of items, as well as the best stores overall. The list looked at Black Friday over the past eight years and who, on average, had the biggest discounts.

According to the list on WalletHub, JC Penny offers the best deals on the infamous shopping day, with average discounts over the past year of up to 64.7%. Belk came in second, Macy’s third, with discounts averaging 53% over the past year. While there are only 16 companies on this list, it’s interesting to note that Costco was last, while Best Buy and Amazon rounded out the last three. Belk seems to be the place to go for the best deals on toys, consumer electronics, apparel & accessories, and home appliances. Office Depot and Office Max are surprisingly the best places to find discounts on furniture. To break down the full list, click the link above.

While not all of these shops in the area and in Twin Falls are an option, that doesn’t mean you can’t check online, drive a little to Boise, Salt Lake City, or maybe be somewhere else as early as Thanksgiving. Make sure you don’t hustle, bite or fight this Black Friday, but also don’t let someone hit you on a good deal you know and what you want. Be safe and happy shopping, it’s almost there.
