opens in Hayden
Greatly discounted apparel, shoes and accessories are offered at Black Friday’s that just opened at 1305 W. Biztown Loop (at West Hayden Avenue).

The items include clothes, outer wear and shoes for women, men and kids. The store will be expanding into adjacent space and open hours soon. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Check www.myblackfridays.com.
