Where to Buy Local on Black Friday

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

 

Don't waste time fighting the door buster crowds. Head to one of these local businesses for a unique gift.

While national chains like Walmart will surely be offering great deals on Black Friday, there are many Central Mass businesses that offer great gifts for the holidays without the massive crowds.

Worcester Local First is a non-profit network of Worcester businesses hoping to connect with consumers to strengthen the Worcester economy. While you won't find a one-stop shop in the bunch, you will find several stores that have great gifts for the holidays. Add in the fact that you won't be fighting the usual Black Friday crowds and that you will be helping local businesses, and it's a win-win.

Adore Boutique

Whatever style you're looking for, you will find it at Adore Boutique. A unique combination of timeless classics and trendy originals adorn the walls, and the selection ranges from simple tops to specialty accessories. Head in to find something for all the special women in your life.


Neal Rosenblum Goldsmiths Gallery
261 Park Avenue

Rosenblum has an exceptional selection of dark and white gold rings, necklaces, earrings and other pieces. Since you are going to a goldsmith and not a jewelry store, you can even design your very own unique piece of jewelry. This can come in especially handy for any guys looking to pop the question around the holidays.

Ok, so we've already bought our grown up stuff, let's have a little fun, primarily with customizable and comfortable t-shirts. Guertin is mostly known for providing quality sporting apparel to area teams, but that shouldn't stop you from making some fun custom shirts for you and your friends and family. Shoot them an email for a quote tailored to your needs and budget.

C.C. Lowell
258 Park Avenue
Link


If you have an artistically gifted child in the family, look no further than C.C. Lowell. The art supply and framing specialist can provide your child with the tools they need to create their own masterpiece, and you can then head back to get it framed once they're done. Or, kids, if you want to give mom and dad that special present, why not frame one of your original works and give it to them this holiday season?
