Black Friday and Small Business Saturday: You Can Still Score Amazing Deals

The usual camaraderie and wall-to-wall crowds might have to wait until next year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the incredible bargains offered at the start of the holiday season. Shop Black Friday on Nov. 27 and Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28 to scoop up some excellent deals ahead of the holidays. Check out your local archery shop’s website for online promotions, special curbside pickup, or other great discounts on archery products.

Sometimes Black Friday deals hit the internet or store shelves long before your Thanksgiving turkey hits the oven. Especially this year, retailers and manufacturers may have their upcoming discounts advertised on their social media or websites now. 

With the wild influx of online shopping because of COVID-19, it’s possible that Cyber Monday could turn into Cyber December this year. If you’ll be shopping from home, get your favorite holiday mug, prop up your laptop, and dig into the sales to find the perfect archery gift. If you shop now, you could have your gifts wrapped and under the tree before the glue dries on the fletching.

If your favorite shop doesn’t have online ordering, check for deals on their website and call to place your order. You can also take advantage of curbside pickup. If you are planning on shopping the big weekend in-person, follow your state’s guidelines and any safe shopping protocol in the store. Look for deals on last year’s bow models and other accessories. Drop some subtle, or not so subtle, hints to your friends or significant other if you’ve got some new gear on your wish list.

Support Local Business

Early Black Friday deals are exciting, but shopping on Small Business Saturday will show your support for local shops and independent businesses. American Express created Small Business Saturday in 2010 as a way to drive more holiday revenue to small businesses. It was officially recognized by the government the following year, and people have been getting into the spirit ever since. It’s important to make purchases on Small Business Saturday so that the national data trends and the archery shop’s reports will demonstrate the community’s appreciation for these businesses. And what better place to get your archery gifts than the archery shop you’ve come to know and trust?

Whether you’re scoping deals online or in-store, Black Friday and Small Business Saturday can still be the exciting kick-off to the holiday season that everyone’s come to love. While 2020 has been a difficult year, we can close it out with good vibes by supporting our favorite businesses.

Visit your store’s website or brick-and-mortar location for stellar deals on archery equipment and light up someone’s holiday.
