WEST SEATTLE HOLIDAYS: Reasons to shop local on Friday (and beyond)

No need to wait for Small Business Saturday. Every day should be Small Business Day – and some West Seattle indies are getting right out of the holiday gates on Black Friday (or sooner):

That’s the promotional video Thunder Road Guitars (6400 California SW; WSB sponsor) has unleashed for the big sale TRG and co-housed The Bass Shop (also a WSB sponsor) are having – TRG proprietor Frank Gross calls it “Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Super Sale Sunday weekend!” He’s offering 15% off hundreds of new, used, and vintage guitars, amplifiers, and pedals. You can even shop early on the TRG website – the web sale starts Thanksgiving morning. Shop doors open 10 am Friday.

Three other WSB sponsors are having sales to entice you to shop local:

Emerald Water Anglers (4502 42nd SW) calls theirs “Fliesgiving” – Friday through Monday, “deals on select rods and reels, and a $25 gift card for every $200 spent.” EWA opens 10 am Friday.

Mountain to Sound Outfitters (3602 SW Alaska) is celebrating their 13th anniversary through Sunday – 20 percent off skis, boots, and bindings; 15 percent off snowboards, boots, and bindings; 25 percent off accessories. Mountain to Sound opens at 11 am Friday.

Lauren’s Jewelry (Westwood Village) is having an in-store sale Friday morning, 8 am-noon, “lots of items on sale” plus free gift wrapping,

All through West Seattle’s business districts, you’ll find reasons to shop close at home. Another example: If you’re nostalgic for old-fashioned get-up-early-on-Black-Friday shopping, don’t miss Record Store Day at Easy Street (California/Alaska), which opens at 7 am Friday for that occasion. Throughout the season, we keep a Shopping Spotlight list in the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide, so if your business is doing something special, let us know!

    After 10 or so years I’m still trying to master basic chords, but that video made me want another guitar!

    Great promo from Thunder Road! Don’t play a guitar or bass, but if I did I know where I would go :)

    Emerald Water Anglers is the best. If you have someone on your list who might want to try fly fishing, there is no better place to get them started!
