Mark Your Calendar for Black Friday & Small Business Saturday on the Bay!

November is here, and so are all the joyful, giddy emotions associated with this month. How can you not feel giddy with Christmas tunes playing on all the radio stations, your favorite local paths illuminated with lights, holiday parties filling up the social calendar, and the excitement goes on and on!

Speaking of calendar…pull that out and grab a pen. Save the date for The Village Shops’ Black Friday Stroll & Shop running Friday, November 25th through Sunday, November 27th! This means it’s time to create those holiday gift lists and head over to The Village to get a head start on your holiday shopping while scoring incredible savings!

In addition to Black Friday on the 25th, come out and celebrate Small Business Saturday, the 26th, and the many unique shops and restaurants that make up The Village. Small Business Saturday, the annual event created by American Express, is aimed at supporting local. This is the day to remember that shopping small has a BIG impact on your favorite local businesses. If there ever was a year to support small business in Naples, this is it! Enough said.

We know that Village visitors love any excuse to celebrate the beloved small businesses here that add so much charm, whether it is buying a one-of-a-kind Christmas ornament for your tree, a sparkling piece of jewelry to wrap for that special someone, or a fashionable new outfit to show off during the holidays. The Village Shops retailers have something for everyone with fashion for men, women, and children, along with shoes, accessories, home décor, jewelry, and so much more.
