It’s finally that time of the year again. Black Friday has come to save the day and help you stretch your wallet this holiday season. But if the mall is too much of a dread, head down to local stores in town. It’s a short drive and those sales taxes will stay in the city, thus instantly becoming eligible to participate in the Laguna Niguel Chamber of Commerce’s campaign, "Shop Laguna Niguel."
So after cooking or enjoying a nice Thanksgiving dinner with your family and loved ones, get ready to head to local stores and pamper yourself. Chances are there’s something waiting for you with your name on it.
Here are some local deals you don’t want to miss out on:
