ds Doesn’t Do Black Friday

I know this may come across as a very bold statement from a retailer and small business owner. But, did you know that the real story behind Black Friday is a much darker story than shoppers taking advantage of the season’s biggest shopping day?

The Philadelphia police coined the term Black Friday in the 1950’s. It was used to describe the chaos that ensued the Friday after Thanksgiving when hoardes of suburban shoppers and tourists flooded the city before the big Army-Navy football game.

Let’s face it, there is still a bit of that chaos hanging around today. All the noise that surrounds Black Friday makes us crazy rather than being thankful and looking at the true meaning of the holidays.

We don’t want to contribute to the craziness of Black Friday bargain shopping. We have no artificial bargains to lure you away from family breakfast. Just a pleasant and quiet shopping experience with the same quality goods at fair prices that we have every day.

We are open on Friday from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.

146 Elm Street, New Canaan
