Black Friday/Small Business Saturday prep

Black Friday-Small Biz Saturday

Just to be clear, this shopping round-up is not for the have-no-fear, I-will-get-that-70%-off-flat-screen-TV Black Friday shopper. This is a list of sales and shopping perks for the more leisurely among us who like to sleep in while sleeping off the turkey coma, head to the stores after we’ve had equal amounts of coffee and leftover pie for breakfast and may or may not be shopping for ourselves as much as we are our for others.

Even better, if you’re avoiding retailers on Black Friday, this list also includes some sweet deals you can shop to support local retailers on Small Business Saturday.

If you want to do more for the #shopsmall movement, head over here to read up on all the Anchorage Downtown Partnership is doing to make Small Business Saturday successful for downtown shoppers.

My list isn’t even close to comprehensive, so if you know of any other deals we should be shopping leave a comment and share the love!
