While hardcore shoppers are turning up in droves at America's malls to experience the excitement of Black Friday in person, it's easy enough to scoop up Black Friday deals from the comfort of your own home. The vast majority of deals are available to online shoppers browsing on laptops, tablets, or iPhones, and in terms of bargains and selection, the Black Friday online deals are arguably better even than what shoppers find in stores.
What's particularly intriguing at Black Friday is that year after year the day is increasingly growing more similar to Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday was created as the online equivalent of Black Friday, yet as the online Black Friday deals keep expanding, it's clear that Black Friday 2017 is not just a day for "going shopping" in the traditional, physical sense.
What's more, in the same way that Cyber Monday deals tend to feature broad, across-the-board discounts on everything e-retailers sell, the websites of major retailers like Gap, Old Navy, J. Crew, Abercrombie & Fitch, Eddie Bauer, Lands' End, and Express are offering 40% off site-wide for Black Friday 2017. Many throw in free shipping on all Black Friday orders too.
We've rounded up a list of over 20 such clothing-heavy stores below, which boast the simplest Black Friday deals possible for shoppers.
