Micro Center often has the best prices on processors and other components, provided you live near an actual store, and Black Friday is the ideal time to find deals on pretty much everything. So what happens when Micro Center and Black Friday collide? Plenty of savings, that's what.
Unfortunately, most of the deals are in-store only, and there are only 25 stores locations in the US. Boo! However, for those of you that are lucky enough to live near one (or are willing to make the trip), you don't necessarily have to fight the crowds on Black Friday. Many of Micro Center's Black Friday deals are live now.
For the deals that go live on Black Friday, you can still skip the crowds, to some extent.
"Micro Center will continue our tradition of being closed Thanksgiving Day, so our employees can enjoy the holiday with their friends and families. Customers can order items online Thanksgiving Day for in-store pickup on Black Friday. Micro Center will open at 8:00am on Black Friday," said Kevin L Jones, VP of merchandising at Micro Center.
