The highly anticipated day is almost hereーthere are less than 24 hours until Black Friday. One of the biggest sales events of the year, the shopping holiday attracts millions of individuals to department stores and the like for a chance to snag exclusive deals. With hundreds of shops participating around the country, you can easily find everything that you’d need from designer sunglasses to rain boots for cheap. Considering the low prices that come with Black Friday, it’s no wonder why people are willing to wait in line in front of a store before they’re even open. While some may treat it as a chance to grab some inexpensive presents for the upcoming holiday season, others may use the opportunity to either upgrade or buy on some necessary items for the home. For those of us who have a furry friend, it’s as great as a time as any to stock up on pet supplies for cheapーwe can’t forget about Fido after all!
Many people underestimate the efforts required for keeping a pet; not only do they deserve top-quality kibble and treats (assuming you have a cat or a dog), but there are also costs associated with grooming, hygiene, travel and various other accessories. For instance, dog crates are not the cheapestーthey can easily run over $100 depending on the size and build. If you have a cat, the costs for kitty litter can also add up. In general, the average pet owner spends at least $500 annually on their pets; even more-so during the first year (e.g. shots, vet visits, etc). With that in mind, pet supplies can be costlyーespecially for those who are on a budget. However luckily for us, pet stores tend to join in the fun for Black Friday, discounting dozens of items from fish tanks to dog beds. If you’re wanting to buy Fido some toys or a new kennel, now’s the chance to do so without having to fork over all your cash.
Some of the most expensive pet supplies include the bigger items such as crates, beds, fish tanks, to list a few; you’d be surprised, for instance, some high-quality pet beds can easily go over the $100 mark. Of course, we also can’t forget about food and treatsーas those typically need to be re-bought every few weeks (it adds up). If you have a puppy-in-training, the costs are even higher as you generally require more supplies such as carpet cleaners, potty pads, training collars, etc. This Black Friday however, many of the above-mentioned items will be on sale! Some of the big-name retailers that will be participating include Pet Supplies Plus, Pet Smart, Petco, to name a few. To help you out with your shopping, we’ve put together a list of some of the best deals offered by said stores here in this article.
