If you believe the big box retail industry, customers are clamoring for earlier and earlier opening times for Black Friday. And in their benevolence, they have responded by taking their employees away from their families on a holiday so that stores can open at midnight as Thanksgiving turns to Black Friday. Remember, they're doing it just for you!
Or if you're like me, you can express disgust by closely tracking which stores open at midnight, and vowing not to shop at any of them in between November 25th and December 31st. And if that's the case, you may be looking for deals at your local small retailers. If any other local businesses want to be written about here, use the comment section or contact me. The West Broadway Business Coalition sent out an email listing deals from NoMi businesses on Saturday, November 26th.
The deals are as follows (click for more, as the deals aren't fully shown in the image above)...
...Friedman's: save 20% on non-sale items in store, and 10% on sale items.
El-Amin's Fish House: Spend $20 and get a free $5 gift card for your next purchase.
Goddess of Glass: 10% off for all American Express cardholders.
