Shopping This Weekend in Ellington and Somers

Black Friday and Small Business Saturday are right around the corner and local retailers are getting ready.

This weekend is a big shopping weekend for many people and while there will certainly be good deals at the large retailers, it is important to remember that our local retailers also need support.

In Ellington and Somers, several retailers are getting ready for the weekend.

Lori LaDue, owner of Beautiful Things Interiors & Gifts, says that she has several Black Friday and Small Business Saturday promotions that she’s running.

The shop will have specials on Chamilia and will also have beads, bracelets, necklaces, Vera Bradley items, and pajamas from Beadhead.

There will be free gifts and a lot of savings this weekend.

At LUXE Beauty & Brows and oneTribe, shoppers will receive a $10 gift card for every $50 spent. Owner Susan Conte will also be giving out a $5 coupon that is good for this weekend and Dickens Weekend (Dec. 1 and Dec. 2).

At oneTribe, owner Sandra Calvo-Rouette will be giving out $5 in oneTribe cash – just for visiting the store from now until Dec. 2. The $5 can be used on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, or Dickens Weekend.
