I posted Black Friday sales on Monday, but they just keep pouring in I’ve never seen retailers gear up for the madness quite like this. It’s a nod to the economic times of course, but I also think that shops are finding new and—quite frankly—FUN ways to attract customers. With crisis comes creativity! And we all benefit from that. Happy Thanksgiving!
A pen makes the perfect gift, and the mind-blowing collection at Ink will be 50–70 percent off from noon to 4pm.
