Last year wasn't the greatest year for shopping on Black Friday, but Black Friday deals and shopping are back in full gear in 2021.

Each year, WalletHub releases a list of the best Black Friday deals by retailers. How did they come up with their results? Well according to their website, they looked at:

"nearly 5,000 deals from 21 of the biggest U.S. retailers’ 2021 Black Friday ad scans and calculated the average discount that each retailer plans to offer. The average discount was weighted based on the prediscounted price of the item in order to give more credit to the retailers discounting higher-ticket items."

These results were based on discounted prices for things like appliances, jewelry, apparel, computers and phones, electronics, consumer packaged goods, toys, and furniture. That's a lot of categories. I am sure that you probably have a lot of items on your list of things to buy that fall under these categories, but where should you go to take advantage of these deals in the Evansville area?
