You know what time it is.
We’re approaching the ultimate shopping weekend, the most frantic “buy ‘em up” three-day stretch of the year: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Hopefully you’ve got your last paycheck all stored up and ready to go, because there are some amazing deals to be had.
The following list is all about local stores. Because when you forgo Best Buy and Kohl’s and Target for the little boutiques and shops in our fine Twin Cities, you’re supporting the dreams and goals of a small business owner and gifting something thoughtful and meaningful to someone on your list (or to yourself).
Here’s where you should be shopping this weekend. See you there!
