The day after Thanksgiving—“Black Friday”—unofficially marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season.
Area stores, shopping centers and malls often open well before dawn that day. People form lines outside of stores and shopping malls in places like Paramus and New York City in the middle of the night.
While these chain stores are often most popular, local small businesses also offer a lot for shoppers on that day and throughout the holiday shopping season.
Do you plan on visiting any local, Teaneck businesses on Black Friday? How about during the rest of holiday shopping season? If so, which ones? Weigh in on what your holiday shopping plans are—not only for gift giving, but also for food and other holiday necessities—in the poll and the comments below.
