THE ANNUAL BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING EVENT IN DOWNTOWN SARATOGA SPRINGS! SARATOGA AREA SHOPPERS FIND AN ALTERNATIVE TO SHOPPING AT THE BIG BOX STORES, THE DAY AFTER THANKSGIVING.
Local shoppers don’t have to go to the big box stores this Black Friday for incredible savings. They can find them in the local boutiques and shops in the downtown area of Saratoga Springs where they can get a head start on shopping local before Small Business Saturday!
On Black Friday, November 25th, over a dozen stores in downtown Saratoga are opening up at 6am and offering progressive savings of 50% from 6 to 7am, 40% from 7 to 8am, 30% from 8 to 9am and 20% throughout the rest of the day on “from everything” to “select items” throughout their stores.
Businesses from Church Street to Broadway to Phila Street to Henry Street to Congress Street will welcome in Black Friday shoppers with savings they’ll be happy they woke up early for! “Black Friday Participant” sandwich boards and balloons will differentiate the storefronts of participating Black Friday Saratoga businesses. The first shoppers who make a purchase in each business will receive a complimentary Black Friday Saratoga shopping bag (while supplies last), filled with information and special offers from area restaurants and sponsors, courtesy of Stewart’s Shops, the Saratoga Regional YMCA, Insurance Agency Group of NY LLC, and Network Saratoga.
New to Black Friday Saratoga this year is “Wrapping for Charity”. The Shelters of Saratoga will be stationed in the lobby of the Arcade Building at 376 Broadway from 7am to 11am. You can conveniently drop off your gifts to be wrapped while you continue to shop. Gift wrapping will be priced at $3-$10 per package. All proceeds will go to Shelters of Saratoga.
