Choose the perfect gift for family and friends, including novelty gifts, luxury clothing, accessories and many more products at Ammar's in the Village and Mall plazas during Black Friday Weekend from November 27 to 29.

You can find ideas and inspiration from candles and photo frames to bath and body products, baby gifts and a myriad of items that fit your unique style.

Ammar's, one of the last remaining bastions of the local department store establishment, continues to hold its own after 52 years. From cosy cashmere and delightful silk accessories to gorgeous gift sets and beautiful eaux de toilette, silky soft toys to pure cotton sleepwear, customers can expect discounts of up to 75 per cent with an additional 10 per cent, discount during the early-bird period on Black Friday.

Ammar's carries more than 200 brands. Among them: Levis, Dockers, Oscar de la Renta, Oleg Cassini, Jordache, Lily of France, Maidenform, and Gelmart - just to name a few. During the three-day sale event, customers can expect massive chainwide discounts in all departments and the best in customer service and ambience to make the shopping experience a pleasant occasion for their valued customers.

Director Michael Ammar Jr, who has played an integral role in the family business for more than 33 years, said being part of the Black Friday Weekend event is a great way of giving back to their customers.


"It is our way of helping our customers to kick-start the Christmas season and for us to give back to our customers by way of discounts on new merchandise,"Ammar said.

Customers can take benefit from discounts at all the Ammar's locations, including King Street, Sovereign Centre and the Village and Mall plazas.

Christmas is also all about the twinkling lights, glistening gold, shimmering silver, and decking the halls is one of the best parts of the season. For most children, Christmas is the time when they simply enjoy the one magical day that comes each year.

Shopping for Christmas gifts for children is one of the true joys of Christmas, and you should enjoy shopping for them, almost as much as they enjoy unwrapping them. There are few other holidays to which children look forward.

Child's Play, another participant in the Black Friday Weekend event, has awesome holiday gift ideas for kids of all ages. It has inexpensive gift ideas for children, including craft, toys, books and games. You can find toys for boys and gifts for girls and lots of fun, practical and educational gift ideas.

Every item in the store will be on sale, and items will be discounted up to 50 per cent on selected items.

The fifth staging of the annual Black Friday shopping experience is being held in collaboration with The Village and Mall plazas, Rapid >True Value, The Gleaner Company, the National Commercial Bank, Power 106FM and Music 99FM.
