When we think of "Black Friday" deals, most of us think about the savings we can get at Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and other large chain stores. Of course, that means we also have to deal with long lines, hard-to-find parking, and deals that sell-out quickly. This Black Friday, I challenge you to change your tradition and shop local. Support your local businesses and get some great deals to boot! Here's a sneak peek at the special savings some of our local merchants have to offer:
- Piney Creek Candle Company--25-50% off select items throughout the store, including 25% off select North Pole Village, Dept. 56 collectibles and 25% off Pumpkin Pie Spice candles.
