6-Hour Power Deal Sneak Preview: Thursday, November 28


snoopytgNo matter who you are, where you celebrate or what treats comprise your Thanksgiving Day feast, I hope you enjoy some quality time with some special people. Me? I’m grateful for my health, my family and a job that supports me while giving me the opportunity to have a little fun at a hectic and stressful time of year for everyone. With the exception of eight stores in complexes that are open, all Eastern Mountain Sports stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day but the machines of commerce are always working at ems.com as our  Black Friday Sale continues and our power deals roll on.

Happy Thanksgiving!



DEAL OF THE DAY: Select EMS Insulated Jackets and Vests, Regularly $149, Now Just $99

The sweet-looking Prometheus jackets above is one of five jackets included in this daily deal which makes it easy to give a great gift while staying under that $100 budget.

Winter Hat
MIDNIGHT- 6AM Take an EXTRA 10% off Hats and Gloves (manufacturers’ restrictions apply)

Naturally cheap people like me are not given to splurging on little indulgences which is why it’s always nice to give people like me gifts of pure comfort. And when it comes to pure comfort, few things deliver more bang for your hard-earned holiday buck than a new winter hat or a pair of gloves. Seriously, I’m so cheap I still wear a nasty looking New England Patriots hat my roommate gave me for Christmas in 1996. Of course, even if I got a new hat this year, I’d still wear that but that’s beside the point. Buy your favorite cheap skate a luxurious pair of gloves. They’ll love you for it.

6AM – NOON Extra 10% off EMS Rain and Shell Jackets & Pants

Give someone the gift of power over rain with outer outerwear that looks great but is all business when it comes to repelling water. Even the most devout gear head will still quiver with delight over a new technical shell. Shells to hikers are like Precious Moments figurines for my mom–no matter how many are on the shelf, there’s always room for one more.


NOON – 6PM Take an EXTRA 35% off all EMS Daypacks

Whether you call it a book bag, a school bag or a backpack, an EMS Daypack is a versatile gift for just about anyone. Stuff it with classic treats like candy, scratch tickets, and a fresh orange and you have a high-performance gift bag that will last for years.


6PM – MIDNIGHT Take an EXTRA 10% off all SmartWool Clothing and Socks

It may sound melodramatic to call clothing “life changing” but that’s exactly how I feel about SmartWool and I’ve heard the same from countless customers. Pricey? Yes, but that’s standard procedure for game-changing, vastly superior products that are profoundly comfortable, remarkably warm yet breathable, naturally antimicrobial and last for years.
