Black Friday Shopping

If shopping on Black Friday is in your plans, we recommend that you make it memorable and enjoyable by hitting the small shops in Old Town.  We just learned that over 80% of the shops in Old Town and Del Ray are independently-owned.  And we all know that a small shop is the place to find a one-of-a-kind gift for your friends and loved ones.

The city has made it easier for us all by providing free parking at parking meters and city-owned garages.  And over 50 independently-owned shops will open early with deals on everything from dog sweaters to home décor.  If you can get out of bed early, it may be worth your while.  Here are some of the deals you will find from participating shops:

6:00AM – 8:00AM: 30% discounts

8:00AM – 10:00AM: 20% discounts

10:00AM – closing: 10% discounts




If your legs get tired, you can hop on the King Street Trolley for free, starting at 6:00AM.  And if you are still up for it, the Annual Tree Lighting will take place at Market Square at 6:00PM.  There are too many participating stores to name but a full list can be found at this link:  Black Friday.  Happy Shopping!
