For some, Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends sharing a meal.
For others, it's just one day away from the real action, Black Friday.
For big stores, you can check local websites and advertisements to get wind of the good deals. For smaller specialty stores like those in the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley, your best bet is to be on an email list.
"A lot of the shops will announce their deals via email or on their Facebook page," said Melissa DiLazaro marketing manager at the Promenade Shops. DiLazaro also points out the the overall hours on Black Friday will be 9am to 10pm, though individual stores are opening earlier. The Promenade will offer a "Black Friday" page to subscribers of it's list as well.
This year, Black Friday has once again made a creep into Thursday, with some stores like Walmart opening the night before as early as 8pm.
