Lindsay Carpenter is the assistant general manager for Birch Run Premium Outlets. This year she says they're ramping up for back-to-back big shopping weekends starting Nov. 16.
"Deer Widows Weekend and Black Friday being within just a couple of days of each other, not even a week. It's exciting. It is event shopping and deal hunting at its best," Carpenter said.
This year is unique for the shopping center. That's because Deer Widows Weekend and the After Thanksgiving Weekend Sale are in the same week, with Deer Widows running from Nov. 16 to 18 and the After Thanksgiving Sale taking place Nov. 23 to 25.
"It is busy and exciting and we are looking to have a lot of traffic," Carpenter said.
Carpenter tells WNEM.com that she and her staff have been planning for months for this big week.
"We just knew that there were a lot of resources that we had to make sure operate flawlessly over those couple of weekends," Carpenter said.
Carpenter expects thousands of shoppers to visit during these November events. And that means big business for her merchants. Carpenter says the shopping center will offer big savings and a great experience for each customer that shops in Birch Run.
"It is our busiest shopping month of the year. We really feel like it's an excellent opportunity for value and savings for our customer. The memories that are made on these weekends are so important that people keep coming back year after year, and we are so excited about that," Carpenter said.
