Take Advantage of These Local Black Friday Sales



“It’s that time of the year again! After a day of thanks, which includes stuffing our faces with good food and enjoying great company, we prepare ourselves to partake in the biggest shopping day of the year: Black Friday. 

Of course major retailers and shopping malls will be the destinations of choice for many consumers. But nothing is better than supporting local boutiques and designers. So, skip those late night Thanksgiving Day sales and early morning doorbusters and take advantage of these deals being offered by some of the best in Chicago, both in-store and online.”

My roundup of some of the best local Black Friday sales is now available at Click HERE to get the listing.

Happy shopping…and more importantly, Happy Thanksgiving!
