With Thanksgiving just hours away many are spending this evening preparing food, picking up last minute items or traveling to be with those near and dear. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday; a relaxing day filled with comforting food and family, and oddly enough followed by a day that I consider to be one of the most harried and stressful. I should rephrase that, I imagine to be one of the most harried and stressful. I’ve heard the stories of Black Friday, the deals, the steals, the crazed people, the ridiculously long lines, people sleeping outside of the mall… thankfully I have never felt the need to subject myself to such torment. I mean, can it be worth my sanity, I think not.
Believe it or not I do plan to venture out this year on such a dark day (pun intended). I do not plead temporary insanity, I plead for the local small business owner. Ambler has a myriad of wonderful shops and restaurants and many of them are offering “Black Friday” deals, not only Friday, but into the weekend as well. Here’s my top ten that you don’t want to miss:
Twisters Yoga– All retail (except yoga mats) is 10-40% off. Friday, Saturday & Sunday. My personal aside, Twisters rocks! They are actually providing (very limited) spinning and yoga classes on Thanksgiving for their seriously committed members (reservation only), talk about good business!
Chamaeleon Boutique– Receive coupon with every purchase awarding up to 50% off one item, Friday only. Hot chocolate w/ marshmallows will be served all day. On Saturday 20% off all handbags and Lindsay Phillips.
Laney’s Kids Boutique– 30-70% off all clothes and accessories Friday & Saturday.
After shopping in Ambler take your receipt from any Ambler business and receive 10% off your tab at Deli Delight & Cone Heads (they’ve got a lot more than ice cream)!
If you are looking for some good eats (that aren’t leftovers) and a good time be sure to check out:
Happy Thanksgiving, see you in Ambler this weekend!
