Midnight Madness at Arden Fair

1581

They’re doing it again. Last year, select stores in Arden Fair mall opened at midnight—yes, midnight—on Thanksgiving night for the Midnight Madness sale. They’re doing it again! I just checked out the Arden Fair website and here are a few of the deals:
 
• 40 percent off merchandise at Express, The Limited and Banana Republic
 
• Buy one, get second item 50 percent off at Bakers Footwear
 
• $20 Bounceback card given with any purchase (while supplies last) at Bare Escentuals
 
Hmm . . . could it be worth braving the cold and downing a couple of Red Bulls to stay awake? It might be, but just note that some deals last only a few hours, so check online to see what deals your favorite stores are offering and for how long.
 
One more thing, as a former retail worker, I have to give props to the workers who will be at the mall Thanksgiving night. While shopping at midnight might be fun for us, it’s work for them. I don’t mean to be preachy, but please be extra courteous. A smile and a sincere “thank you” will go a long way. Happy shopping!
