Black Friday mall hours in South Florida: Guide to planning your shopping trips


6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
19501 Biscayne Blvd., Aventura
(305) 935-1110
Parking — Valet parking is available at the entrance off Biscayne Boulevard near Bella Luna, the entrance off Abigail Road near the Cheesecake Factory and in the Bloomingdale's parking garage on the fifth level. The Nordstrom parking garage fills up the slowest, so latecomers can head there. Pre-parking is OK.
Extras — Every child to visit Santa Claus gets a free children's book.
12 a.m. on Thanksgiving to 10 p.m. on Black Friday
801 N. Congress Ave., Boynton Beach
(561) 736-7902
Parking — No valet parking. If you're late, avoid the parking lots near Macy's and JC Penny because they tend to fill up quickly. Pre-parking is fine.
Extras — Free goody bags and coffee for the first 200 18-or-older shoppers lined up at the food court entrance.
6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
3200 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale
(954) 537-2700 or (954) 245-5585
Parking — There is no valet parking but pre-parking is not a problem, even as early as Thanksgiving Day.
Extras — None.
9469 West Atlantic Blvd., Coral Springs
12 a.m. on Thanksgiving to 10 p.m. on Black Friday
Parking — No valet. The parking lots will all fill up quickly, but the fastest to fill may be the food court entrance, located at Ramblewood Drive and North University Drive. Try instead the lots on Ramblewood and West Atlantic Boulevard. If you want to pre-park before midnight, you do it at your own risk of getting a hard-to-remove sticker with no fine attached to it placed on your windshield by security. Other than that, you should be fine pre-parking.
Extras — The first 200 customers to enter at the Ramblewood Dr. and North University Dr. entrance by the food court get goody bags of hand sanitizer, candy, granola bars, water bottles and mall information. Twenty of those bags contain mall gift cards.
The Galleria
8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
2414 East Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304
(954) 564-1015
Parking — Valet parking is available at the main entrance off Sunrise Boulevard, near the restaurants. If you park earlier than Friday morning, park in the Orange Garage; the others will be chained off.
Extras — None.
8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
3101 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens
(561) 622-2115
Parking — Valet parking is available at the entrance off PGA Boulevard and Fairchild Gardens Avenue. Pre-parking is not allowed for all lots, but parking near department stores that open earlier than the mall is allowed.
Extras —
6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
11401 Pines Blvd., Suite 546, Pembroke Pines
(954) 436-3311
Parking — A valet parking station will be outside the main entrance on the mall's north side, between California Pizza Kitchen and Red Robin. The north side parking lots tend to fill up more slowly than the south side lots, so try those if you arrive late. But don't try pre-parking: Your car could be towed, and both security guards and hired off-duty police officers will be patrolling the parking lots.
Extras — Light FM will be doing a live remote broadcast all morning, with giveaways of Pembroke Lakes Mall gift cards.
8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Lyons Rd. and Wiles Rd., Coconut Creek
(954) 974-6624

Extras — None.

9 p.m. on Thanksgiving to 9:30 p.m. on Black Friday
(954) 846-2350
Parking — Valet parking is accessible from both the north and south side of the property. Additional Black Friday parking will be available beginning on Thursday, November 22 through the following day at the BB&T Center, located across the street from the mall. The mall is OK with pre-parking on Thanksgiving Day, but not the preceding night.

(561) 368-6000

Extras — The first 100 shoppers get "Shopper's Survival Guides" containing coupons, snacks and more. The Boca Raton Community High
School Band will be on hand to provide gift wrapping for a donation in the amount of your choosing.

Parking — Valet parking is available at the east entrance, which is off University Dr., near the fountain.

Any time on Thanksgiving is fair game.
