The best of (Canadian) Thanksgiving sales

Hello everyone and happy Thanksgiving weekend!

Whether you are celebrating or not tomorrow, I am sure you are game for a few good deals. Do not expect Black Friday-type discounts, but here is the best out there -- and most of them are conveniently online so that if you end up eating a lot of turkey, you may do your shopping right from the couch. :)

Aritzia's online-only sale has a limited but interesting selection. Premium denim by J Brand and Citizens of Humanity is 40% off, and several knits are 40-50% off (I love this one, but beware because it fits large, so you may need to go down a size). And, if you want to catch up with the graphic sweatshirt trend, search no more and point your mouse here. Shipping is free if you spend 150$ or more. Ends Monday, October 13.

You have until tonight to add items to your Dreambox, waiting for a surprise discount tomorrow. From past experience, the sale is never more than 15%, but Yoox sales are hard to come by. (Sometimes free shipping is also included, a saving of 15 CAD)

Joe Fresh
Joe Fresh never has a good sale, and their clearance section is pretty much a joke (think shorts in October, and with only one size remaining -- the "new Fall styles" added a few days ago were 2 pairs of jeans on final sale that are pretty much sold out now). This is why you have to get excited about 25% off sweaters, including cashmere and merino. I am not a fan of their cashmere, but I am holding my breath with their merino sweaters. Shipping is free if you spend 50$ or more. The sale ends October 23, but hurry because there is not restocking of sold-out sizes. Also, knitwear is not available in stores in Quebec, so you need to shop online for this one.

Holt Renfrew, Ogilvy and HR2
Hold Renfrew only (Ogilvy and HR2 are explicitly excluded from this sale) offers up to 30% off select Fall merchandise. The list of exclusions is not indicated on the website, so you need to get downtown to check out the sale (all stores are open with their regular hours tomorrow). I would be shocked if there is anything interesting, but at least you can get a taste of Holts' "Bella Italia" Italian immersion.

The Hudson's Bay
The cybersale goes live tomorrow but you can preview it here. Nothing too exciting except for 40% off at Topshop. (I am sure 35% off tops and blouses will have a mile-long list of exclusions, and the sale at Aritzia beats the 20% off premium denim)

The GAP group
The GAP groups is always running a sale, and this one is nothing special. GAP offers 40% off until tomorrow, Banana Republic offers 40% off, and Old Navy up to 50% off. Lots of exclusions, so beware.

Across the border
US sales will not begin until mid-next week (for exemple, Saks' Family and Friends sale begins on October 16). I follow Madison Avenue Spy for updates on the best deals, since now most US department stores ship to Canada as well.
