Black Friday- Where to shop in the Berkshires

Shop ‘til You Drop Friday!

That’s right Shopaholics, Black Friday, one of the BIGGEST shopping days of the year, is right around the corner. Now that you’ve had time to sleep off that Turkey dinner, put on those shopping shoes and get moving. The Berkshires may be filled with many outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing, and nature trails, BUT we have all you need to fulfill your shopping needs.

If you’re looking for high-end brand name stores, The Lee Premium Outlets will provide you with the ULTIMATE shopping experience, located approximately 20mn from The Yankee Inn. Take your pick!

For the ladies, they have stores like Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein etc. For the guys, check out Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, and Michael Korrs and more. Let’s not forget the kids so take a stop at the Gap Outlet-Kids and Babies or Carters. Hungry? Rest those tired feet and refuel at The Food Court where you can pick up a quick snack at The Snack Shop or sit down and enjoy a nice meal from Jonathan’s Bistro or simply a Subway sandwich. Ok, great! Now that you are
re-energized, it’s time to get moving because you still need shoes and accessories, so mosey on over to Nine West, Cole Haan, Claire’s Accessories and Sunglass Hut for the latest styles. Ladies, we know our day of shopping is never complete without a little bit of pampering, so why not treat yourself to a new perfume or body lotion at The Fragrance Outlet and Bath and Body Works. Since you’ve been such a trooper, fighting tons of other shopaholics bumping into you to get to those one time sale items, I think you deserve something sweet and what better place to indulge yourself then with Harry and David and Lindt Chocolates. Good Job!! I’d say it’s time for a nice long nap!

Wait! I’m not done. If you’re not ready for that nap just yet and want to continue your shopping spree for holiday gifts, pick up a latte, drop off your bags at The Yankee Inn, and head North on Rt 7 for about 20 mins towards The Berkshire Mall in Lanesborough. This will provide with the complete Mall experience. You name it, they got it. Every store you can imagine is there, along with Target and Sears. As the saying goes, “The Mall Has It ALL”. Why not complete your busy, busy day with a night at the movies. You got it! They have that too. Oh My Gosh. I’m exhausted just writing about all the shopping. I think I’ll indulge in a treat for myself. See you at the Mall!

Happy Shopping to all and to all a good night!
