Black Friday: Must-Shop Locations in Grayslake

What are your favorite stores in and near Grayslake to visit bright and early the morning after Thanksgiving?

The holiday shopping season kicks off in a big way next week when retailers in and near Grayslake officially celebrate Black Friday and more recently, Small Business Saturday.

That fabled day after Thanksgiving is one of the biggest sales days of the year for many stores – both national, big box chains and local retailers. It’s also one of the best days to save on items big and small as retailers pull out the stops to offer amazing deals to get customers in their doors.

The latter is exactly why we want to help Grayslake Patch readers map out a Black Friday and Small Business Saturday game plan. But to do that, we need your help.
