Full disclosure here: I’ve never been super into Black Friday shopping. But one year, my sister and I got the bright idea to drive to Tanger Outlets at midnight after Thanksgiving to try it out. Long story short, we came sorely unprepared, got overwhelmed, and went home empty handed. It was Cyber Monday for me from then on.

But if you are the type of person who enjoys the Black Friday madness, the Smokies is a great place to do it, and I’m sure it helps to come prepared with a game plan, unlike me.
