Bargain hunters absolutely love Black Friday and can’t wait for its arrival every year — the Friday after Thanksgiving. However, can you imagine if Black Friday deals were available every week? Well, Aurora is the go-to place for such deep discounts, thanks to the daily discount store at 1200 S. Abilene St. And what do you call a store offering Black Friday deals every day? Black Friday$, of course!
The deep discount store buys truckloads of overstocked merchandise, store returns, discontinued items and much more from major retailers across the country.
They buy in bulk and pass the savings on to its customers. Shoppers can find savings up to 90% off.
Each store receives approximately 50,000 new products every week. As a result, it’s basically an entirely new store each and every week. Shopping there is like a treasure hunt, searching for the newest items at low prices.
Die-hard bargain hunters will want to be first in line every week to get the best deals, when the store “reopens” every Friday morning at 9 a.m.
What’s available for sale?
The store offers a huge array of name brand products and overstocks, which varies widely each week. However, you’re likely to find the following items in stock:
Here’s how it works:
Pay one-flat price each day, no matter how valuable the product. Everything is limited quantities and available on a first-come, first-served basis. The early bird bargain hunter gets the best deals.
There is often a long line, when the store “reopens” each Friday. Plan accordingly. (The store has temporary safety guidelines in place, so be prepared to wear a mask and socially distance.)
The store starts selling everything at one low-price and each day the price drops until everything is sold for the week.
(Note: They’re closed on Thursdays to restock and get ready to “reopen” on Fridays.)
The price recently increased by a buck or two for most days.

MHOTC Tip: Deep discount stores can often be chaotic, disorganized and a little messy. Good bargain hunters are also great detectives. Take the extra time to rifle through bins, move items around and search the higher/lower shelves for hidden deals. Be patient, don’t get overwhelmed and you’re bound to find some great “hidden” savings.
Happy bargain hunting!
