We all know that Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving, which means it’s this Friday! What doorbuster deals are you eyeing? If you’re venturing out for in-store deals, remember to social distance, wear your mask, and stay safe. If you’d rather stay at home, don’t worry! Cyber Monday is just a few days away!

The Virtual Lake Nona Shop Small Weekend, hosted by your neighborhood champion, Nonahood News, takes place this weekend! The 6th annual event will begin at 8 AM on Saturday, Nov. 28 and will last until 10 PM on Sunday, Nov. 29, 2020. The shopping holiday will look a little different in 2020 and it’s more important than ever to go out and support our local small businesses in Lake Nona. Small shops have been struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we want to ensure that the local small businesses feel our support and continue to serve our community.
