Updated on Wednesday November 14, 2018: Can believe that Thanksgiving is almost here? And the entire team here at Blacker Friday is working around the clock to bring you this year’s best Black Friday ads, including from West Marine. So what’s coming?
While it’s still too early for us to have the “official” details, we’ve been looking back at what they’ve been offering the last few years and have somewhat a sense of what’s likely to come. You can expect to see some of the lowest prices of the year on select fish finders and chart-plotter combos, up to 50% off select boating stereo systems, and up to 40% off boating essentials (everything from coolers to flashlights). Most offers are also available both online and in-stores so no need to rush out of the house if you prefer shopping the deals from home. As we learn more we will be providing updates for you right here on Blacker Friday — Check back soon or signup to our newsletter and we’ll keep you in the loop.
As we wait, you can already take a moment to check out West Marine’s sale and outlet pages at westmarine.com. You’ll already be able to find deals at up to 75% off before the Thanksgiving weekend holiday crowds rush in. If you end up buying nothing from their online store then all orders can either ship to your nearest store for free (no min. purchase required) or to your home for free if you spend at least $50 on your total purchase.

Updated Tuesday, November 14, 2017: Get ready because West Marine’s Black Friday 2017 ad is here! We’ve scanned all 7 pages and have posted it down below for you to enjoy.
Just a few quick notes: This year you have 5 full days to shop the deals. The sale runs from November 23—27th (ends on Cyber Monday) and is available both in-stores and online. Online shoppers actually get a few extra deals that are not available in stores — Including 15% off site-wide on Thanksgiving day — so be sure to check it out (all physical store locations are closed all day on Thanksgiving).
Some exclusions may apply and certain items my sell out early. Good luck and happy shopping!
