Here are some tax-free shopping tips for planning a successful 2017 Black Friday excursion in Delaware:

From North to South - Start either at the Concord Mall (6 p.m. – 12:00 a.m. Thursday and 6 a.m. – 10 p.m. Friday), which is, right over the Pennsylvania line or Christiana Mall (6 p.m. Thursday – 10 p.m. Friday), which is located off 95. Before heading out, do some research on the products you are searching for and the stores you are targeting.

Be sure to check the websites for the stores you’re planning on visiting and download their app to find the absolute best deals.

Then, decide which Mall or store fits your needs. Both malls will be open super early!

After making the rounds at Concord or Christiana, you can make your way downstate to the Dover Mall (6 a.m. - 10 p. m.), and Tanger Outlets (12:00 a.m. – 10 p.m. Friday).

From South to North (Or from the West) - Tanger Outlets Rehoboth Beach is the place to go! Over 150 brand name outlets plus, deals and discounts that happen all through the night beginning on Thanksgiving. Make sure to check their website before shopping for extra deals. Here is a big travel tip: in the Seaside outlets (on the north bound side) there is additional parking in the back of the center!

Once you’ve completed your Tanger Outlets adventure, you can head up north to the Dover Christiana and Concord Malls to pick up additional items on your list.

For electronics and large ticket items: Wal-Mart, Target and Best Buy always have great deals and special hours on Black Friday as you travel north to south or vice versa you will find locations throughout the state. Don’t forget, the Christiana Mall is home to a Microsoft and Apple Store and the Tanger Outlets has a Bose store location.

Need a little caffeine jolt to the morning? All of the shopping locations have on-site and nearby dining for coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner if you plan on shopping all day! Local favorites include: Einstein Bros Bagels (northern locations), Brew Ha Ha! and Notting Hill Coffee (Lewes), Dolce (Milford), and of course, Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts and all of your favorites are throughout the state!

After a long day of shopping, you'll be ready to sit back and relax. Search for a Delaware hotel, and spend the night so you can take advantage of Small Business Saturday on Nov. 25.
