Most people have their favorite stores and have Black Friday planned out days if not weeks in advance. While doing your research for places to go and where to find the best deals, make sure you are not buying something that may be cheaper elsewhere. WalletHub recently released a list of the best places to shop this Black Friday, and they broke it down into where to go for certain types of items, as well as overall best stores. The list looked at the last eight years of Black Fridays and who had the biggest discounts on average.

According to the list on WalletHub, JC Penny offers the best deals on the infamous shopping day, with last year averaging discounts of up to 64.7%. Belk came in at number two with Macy's coming in at third, with discounts being an average of 53% off last year. While there are only 16 companies on this list, it is interesting to note that Costco was last, with Best Buy and Amazon rounding out the bottom three. Belk seems to be the place to shop for the best deals on toys, consumer electronics, apparel and accessories, and appliances. Office Depot and Office Max are surprisingly the best places to find discounts on furniture. To see the full list broken down, make sure to click the link above.
