“This year shopping local and supporting our local economy is more important than ever,” said Fran Dingeman, Owner of Network Saratoga and organizer of the Black Friday Saratoga promotion for the past eight years. “Our local businesses have endured challenging times since the pandemic first hit in March. At a time of year when local shoppers will be making purchases on gifts and accessories for the holidays, we invite you to thoughtfully make those purchases at local retail shops so we can help keep our local businesses ‘in business’ after the holiday season. Retailers participating in the Black Friday Saratoga Group Sale this year are each offering their own custom deals and opening at a variety of different hours. Businesses will be putting out their best incentives to come and shop their stores all weekend long and into the holiday season. An added benefit is that shoppers can walk away feeling good about supporting the local business economy and keeping their spending dollars local.”
Businesses are adapting to 2020 and responding to new consumer needs. Many are offering online, curbside pick up and delivery options within certain areas.
