Black Friday 2021 Start & End Dates

For the last six years that we’ve been monitoring Staples’ Black Friday ads, the sale dates have remained the same, except for last year when they extended the start date by four days due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So what about this year? We’re expecting the same extended sales schedule as we’re not yet out of the woods with the virus. Here are the Black Friday 2021 start and end dates that we’re expecting:

  • Expected BF sale start date: Thursday, Thanksgiving day, November 25, 2021 at 12:00AM EST online and Friday November 26, 2021 when stores open at 7:00AM Sunday November 21, 2021 both in-stores and online. Remember, all Staples locations are typically closed on Thanksgiving day itself to let their employees spend the holiday with family and friends.
  • Expected BF sale end date: Saturday November 27, 2021 at 11:59PM PST or when stores close, while supplies last.

Note: these dates are still preliminary estimates based off of last year’s sales schedule. Staples’ confirmed Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale dates/times for 2021 will be posted as soon as they are officially announced by the company.
