Black Friday & Small Business Saturday!

by Christen Coppola

I’m so excited to have a gift guide this year, and I’m even more excited that I’m able to share local, female-owned businesses, some of which are even eco-friendly! Yay!


So, we have to talk about Black Friday first. I’m so excited to talk “brick and mortar” shops for Black Friday sales!

Goodwill 50% off from 9am-5pm

Savvy Fox – 20% off entire store, 10am-5pm

Clothes Mentor Bridgeville – NWT clothing release, and also get $10 CM cash for every $50 you buy in gift cards! 10am-9pm

Plato’s Closet McKnight – Get $5 christmas cash for ever $30 to spend between 12/17-12/24, 10% off store with student ID, or, get 10% off if you sell some clothes and shop all in the same trip!

Steel City Cotton Shop – 20% off with code BLACKFRIDAY - you can shop their website or their store on Smithfield street downtown!


Now, lets talk about Small Business Saturday! This is a great day to patron new or unfamiliar businesses in your neighborhood. Did you know that every $1 spent at a local business goes twice as far in the local economy than money spent at a large chain? And not only are you supporting a local, unique business, but you’re also supporting your neighbors!! Small businesses keep neighborhoods unique, competitive, and lively! Here’s some of my favorite picks for Small Business Saturday!
Here’s a friendly tip: Plan your day ahead of time to include a local coffee shop so that when you zoom past Starbucks, you’ll already know where to get your caffeine fix for the day!!


Style Exchange Boutique – Giveaways, snacks, mimosas, and sales!! – 10-6pm

Wagsburgh – 10% off entire store, plus lots of unique brands and hard to find products. Bonus: Joe the owner has a bully and carries lots of bully-specific toys!!

Healthy Pet Products – Lots of sales, giveaways, and fun throughout the day!

Helen & Earl - Lots of unique finds, you’ll want to shop for friends AND yourself!

Black Forge Coffee - My favorite local coffee shop! They have amazing locally sourced, vegan snacks too! Bonus: lots of local artwork for sale!

Shop 412 - Classic tshirts for all ages!
