11 Charlotte Women Biz Owners Share ‘Black Friday’ Deals you Don’t want to miss!
If a 5 AM wake up to battle ‘Game of Thrones-style’ through the mall sounds less than stellar- how about spending this Black Friday cozily, burrito-wrapped in a fave blanket sipping a hot cider (spiked if you are me) and not only shopping–but SUPPORTING some of Charlotte’s finest women-owned businesses. (I mean, Amazon is fine is and all -but keeping dollars in our own community and supporting a woman’s dreams is way more enchanting, no?)
