How to save money at Joann Fabrics this Black Friday
You've waited the whole year for this, and it's almost here. Black Friday 2020 might just be the biggest shopping event of the last decade.
Joann Fabrics is a mecca for crafters, so if you like creating beautiful things for your home or to give away, you won't want to miss the store's Black Friday 2020 specials. Keep tabs on what those are, as well as any Joann Fabrics coupons you can use when you visit Savings.com.
The world will be doing things a little bit differently this Black Friday due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Do your part by keeping this information in mind.
The majority of Joann Fabrics stores are currently open. Use the store locator at joann.com to verify whether your nearby store is open and what its revised operating hours may be.
In July 2020, Joann Fabrics adopted a mask mandate. It asks that all customers wear a face covering while in the store, even if local regulations don’t call for one.
The store is also limiting how many patrons will be allowed within a store at any given time. While subject to change, the current rule is one shopper for every 1,000 square feet.
To allow the community’s most vulnerable an opportunity to shop, stores are dedicating an hour a day for those who are elderly or who suffer from preexisting health conditions. To find out your local store’s specific shopping schedule, give them a call.
Many Joann Fabrics stores have implemented a curbside pickup service. To take advantage, simply place your order online and then head to the store when you receive notice that your purchase is ready for pickup. Call the store when you arrive and provide details about your order and the type of car you’re driving. A store associate will bring your items to your car and place them in the trunk, the passenger seat, or wherever you specify.
Joann Fabrics hasn’t released any details about this year’s Black Friday sale. However, the store tends to follow roughly the same schedule every year and offers the same kinds of deals. By reviewing past sales flyers, we can predict what hot buys will be available for Black Friday 2020.
Last year, Joann Fabrics released its Black Friday ad on November 21st, a week before the start of its Black Friday festivities. It’s a good guess that the store will follow a similar timeline this year.
As far as actual sale dates, the retailer offered early-bird specials online starting the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. As stores nationwide are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday, in-store deals kick off on Black Friday.
Store hours may vary due to the pandemic, but if they follow the same schedule as previous years, stores will open bright and early on Friday morning at 6:00 a.m.
When it comes to deals, shoppers can expect a ton of craft and hobby-related specials. In 2019, Joann Fabrics’s Black Friday ad was only eight pages long, but it was stuffed with huge discounts.
Right on the first page, the store announced it was offering doorbusters priced at up to 75% off. These included its entire stock of flannel fabrics, Christmas cotton fabrics, no-sew fleece throw kits and select strung beads.
From there, shoppers could snatch up fabric quarters for just 79 cents each, Singer sewing machines at up to 55% off, DIY jewelry kits for $4.99, and one pound rolls of yarn for $4.99 each.
As you flipped through the ad, you would also notice that there were Joann Fabrics coupons to clip. These coupons promised 25%, 40% and 50% off your purchases. However, you had to review the terms of each coupon carefully. That’s because each coupon was only valid for a particular time period. For example, there was a coupon for 25% off your entire purchase, but it was only valid from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 30th. Another coupon offered 40% off one regularly priced item, and it could be used through December 4th.
Seeing as Joann Fabrics always has such amazing deals for Black Friday, you really need to develop a shopping strategy before heading out. Otherwise, you may become overwhelmed with all the discounts and coupons.
To ensure you can take advantage of every discount available, be sure to carefully review Joann Fabrics’s Black Friday ad as soon as it’s released. Take careful note of when the sales start (both online and in-store), as well as when each coupon will be valid.
From there, check out all the items that are on sale. Remember that the prices you see on Black Friday are likely to be the cheapest you see all year, so don’t hesitate to buy for later. Have some crafts projects that will require fabric but not until later in the year? Buy your fabric now and store it. It’s unlikely you’ll see savings anywhere close to 75% when you’re actually ready to start your project.
As Joann Fabrics’s online sale will start before the in-store one, consider doing your shopping online. That way, you’ll have the best opportunity to pick up everything you want. Should something sell out before you get to it, you’ll have a second opportunity to snatch it up when your local store opens on Friday.
Don’t want to wait for home delivery because you want to start on your new projects immediately? Choose in-store pickup, and you can retrieve your purchases as soon as the same day.
