While no official Black Friday 2021 sales have begun yet, there may be good reason to start your holiday shopping now. California ports, which handle 40% of the nation’s imports, are facing a record backlog of cargo ships, meaning you may not find the products you want as quickly as usual this holiday season. Retailers from Best Buy to Nordstrom are expecting some stress related to port issues.

Luckily Black Friday fan-favorite stores already have deals happening right now. Stores including Walmart, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Amazon and more have deals on apparel, decor and electronics, among other categories.
