Start planning for Black?Friday
November 12, 2012
Next week is going to be a busy week for everyone — I know here at the Central Oregonian. We will be closed Thursday, Nov. 22 and Friday, Nov. 23, so that our employees can celebrate Thanksgiving with their families.
In addition, Friday, Nov. 23 is what has become known as Black Friday for most business. Saturday, Nov. 24 is now known as Small Business Saturday, and here in Prineville, Sunday, Nov. 25 has been traditionally Open Sunday for many businesses who open their doors with savings throughout their stores.
If your business will be having sales for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and/or Open Sunday, please let us know by calling 541-447-6205. That way we can let our readers in on who is doing what in the Tuesday, Nov. 20 publication.
