El Buen Fin ("The Great Weekend") is Mexico's answer to the U.S. Black Friday deals. Although in the states it was customary that the sales after Thanksgiving Day were only on Friday, retailers have expanded their deep discounts throughout the weekend.
This is where Buen Fin comes in as it is not only one day of sales, it is a whole weekend.
You will see the Buen Fin signs displayed on participating businesses around Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Expect to save from 10% to 50% on purchases.
The purpose of this program was to impulse the Mexican economy and get people out there to spend their money.
This initiative is an alliance with retailers in department stores, grocery stores, apparel, automobiles and more. Big retailers like Home Depot and Liverpool are on board and supporting the initiative as well as smaller stores across the country.
El Buen Fin takes place in Mexico starting Friday, November 18 through Revolution Day on Monday, November 21.
