Black Friday’s history, but Super Saturday beckons



Black Friday was aptly named, according to some downtown merchants whose sales that day were anything but brilliant. Others fared better, but all are hoping for big, happy crowds this coming Saturday, Dec. 7, on Country Christmas Fun Day. A full slate of activities are planned (including Santa) for children, and open houses and door prizes beckon at more than a dozen participating businesses. (See COUNTRY CHRISTMAS ad, page A10 for details.)

It’ll be an old-time, small town, country Christmas to remember with bargains to match as downtown merchants welcome kids and shoppers with open doors, open houses, and open arms. Don’t miss it.
