I would guarantee that if you can wait a while you would find just as good bargains and you'd have far more comfort in going about your business too and in any case if you have money you can ALWAYS find (or negociate) a reasonable deal - even in the most UNLIKELY places --simply ask to see the manager - it works more often than you think.
Anyway "Happy Turkey Day" to you over there - forget the shopping bit - enjoy your Family / Friends etc. and use the long weekend to do something NICE and relaxing - and if possible DIFFERENT from what you can do almost every day.
