    Black Friday?

    Black Friday?

    We usually get 2 or 3 from SBS, but not crazy busy. Hey I'll take any free promotion I can get! :) We do put the carpets out, use the bags they provide, put the banners out in front of the building, pens and balloons, etc. They always send a bunch of marketing material.

    Black Friday?

    Is your shop planning to be open for Black Friday? We usually close on that day, and stay home. Any time we opened on BF, it was dead. We are open the day after, for Small Business Saturday. Just start a discussion. Feel free to create your own, too! :)
