For years, Black Friday meant trekking across the border to score huge sales in American stores. As the Canadian dollar gets further from par with the US dollar and more Canadian stores begin opting for Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, heading south is no longer necessary for big deals.

While many stores are waiting until closer to Black Friday (November 24) to announce their sales, some chains are already giving customers a heads up on deals to come. Below are a few of our favourites.
