Big-box stores are the ones that tend to draw attention on Black Friday, thanks to the long lines that snake around the building even before the sun rises and the deep discounts on big-ticket items, such as flat-screen televisions.
However, while small businesses might not open their doors at 4 a.m. Friday, many local companies are still offering their shopping-inclined customers special Black Friday deals as well as sales that carry over into National Small Business Day on Saturday.
Patch asked local businesses to share their Black Friday offerings so local shoppers could have a sneak peek. (Make sure to mention where you found the deal.)
Here's a compilation of some of the best deals available Friday, only at your local businesses:
