Black Friday is coming to Grand Forks

Several local businesses are offering great savings on Friday, Nov. 22

Black Friday.

Black Friday has been a staple of the U.S. for several years now. Black Friday occurs on the Friday following Thanksgiving and is generally seen as the kick-off to the Christmas shopping season. The day sees most retailers offering incredible savings to entice shoppers.

Here in the great white north, Black Friday is more of a recent phenomenon but one that is catching on like wildfire. Cranbrook in the East Kootenay has had a Black Friday event for a couple of years and now Grand Forks is joining the fray.

Several local businesses are offering great savings on Friday, Nov. 22 in an effort to entice shoppers to stay local and avoid border hassles, exchange rates and duty costs.

For more details and a complete savings guide, please see next Wednesday’s (Nov. 20) Gazette.
