Family Dollar Black Friday 2013

The ad for the Family Dollar Black Friday 2013 event has leaked, although it’s really more accurate to think of this as a Thanksgiving sale event.

The 8-page ad also promotes deals on food and personal care items,which will be offered through the weekend, but Thursday is definitely the day you’ll want to head to your local Family Dollar. Buy 1, Get 1 50-70% off deals on top-notch gift items like toys, bedding and home decor make Family Dollar a solid destination for early holiday shopping.

Best Family Dollar Black Friday deals from 2012

The discounted retailer Family Dollar opened its doors last year at 8am on Thursday, Thanksgiving day. The sale went through Saturday, but there were specific pages of the 8-page ad committed to the Thursday-only deals.

First off, the front-and-center deal on the first page was the Buy One, Get One 70% off for all toys in the store. This doesn’t include video games or corresponding accessories to them, but many other toys were still available! Another good deal included the 88¢ sale on snacks, shampoo, detergent, and other household products. The Thursday deals on later pages in the ad included Buy One, Get One 60% off all household rugs, framed art, kitchen towels, and a few other home products. The same deal applied to all trees, lights, & holiday décor.

The 3-day sale still had plenty of cheap candy and more available. The 10 for $10 mix & match sale covered a large pool of products from candy to condiments. For the winter weather, all sleepwear & slippers—and all hats & gloves—have a Buy One, Get One 60% off discount. “Throw” in a fleece throw or wrap into that same discount and we start to realize that this trend covered at least half the ad. For buyers wanting to buy household and other products for cheap, Family Dollar is the stop to make on Black Friday!
