While the crowds may be intimidating and the hours seemingly ridiculous, take advantage of the steals one can find on this day. Even though the big chains are dropping some heavy deals, keep in mind that shopping locally is not only great for the community but also more likely to offer a pleasant shopping experience. Visit these local boutiques and shops for fantastic finds and discounts that last past the hour you actually wish to wake up.
