Black Friday 2020 – What to Expect
Updated on Saturday November 21, 2020: Black Friday is again quickly coming up… but don’t hold your breath for a sale coming directly from Patagonia. No, it’s not because of the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic that’s sweeping the country. A few year’s ago they stopped running Black Friday sales on their website to encourage folks to spend the day off outdoors and not in the mall (similar to what REI does).
But that doesn’t mean that some of Patagonia’s resellers don’t have any offers this Thanksgiving weekend! Here’s a look at some of of stores worth checking:

Why No Black Friday Sale?
Patagonia is urging users to buying less – less of their products and products in general! The high and devastating environmental impact that follows the mass production of clothes and accessories urges the Company to make high quality, long lasting and stylish products what will be with you for several years. Patagonia provides you with tips on how to care for your clothes to preserve them for much longer but also employs technicians who will repair your products if there is already a need for it. The Company also has a “reuse and recycle” program running. You can trade your used clothes or recycle them if there are beyond being usable. Check out their WORN Wear program for more details.
This may explain why their clothes are often expensive – you pay for a high quality and great post-buy service. Believe us, their products are worth their prices.
With that being said, it doesn’t mean that Patagonia never offers any discounts on their items. In fact, they typically have two big sales a year — Usually in mid-February and in August where you can find some good prices on their past-season clothing and gear (usually at up to 50% off). You just have to keep yours eyes open are these deals then to sell out quickly.
