Old Town Boutiques Offer 'Black Friday' Discounts

The Shop Local Alexandria project has coordinated Black Friday early-bird hours and discounts at dozens of independently owned stores to lure shoppers away from big box stores. Two dozen retailers in Old Town Alexandria will open at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, with discounts on all merchandise starting at 30 percent off. As the morning continues, the discounts will decrease.

From 6 a.m. to 8 a.m., shoppers will enjoy 30 percent off; from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., discounts will drop to 20 percent; and 10 a.m. to close, customers enjoy 10 percent off. Additional stores will be offering sales and special promotions throughout the day.
