We will do anything to avoid the mall on the busiest shopping day of the year. We will also do anything that qualifies as "exercise," and we consider shopping a sport.
So, if you need to shake off that post-Thanksgiving food coma, here is where you can shop locally — at a discount. Support the small stores that make Dallas the great shopping city that it is.
Here are a few spots on our radar with Black Friday promotions:

Wear your jammies to this funky Henderson Avenue store and receive 20 percent off all clothing and holiday gear. Or, assuming you can still fit into your jeans, forgo the pajamas and bring a new, unwrapped toy for the toy drive. The sale runs 9 am-noon. Plus: breakfast!
Okay. So you don’t have to get out of bed for this one. But the Granada Theater is offering up to 47 percent off certain shows in December. All you have to do is get online between 10 am, Friday, November 23, and 10 am, Monday, November 26. Discounted tickets are available for shows such as Charlie Robison, The Mountain Goats, Lucky Peterson, Hard Nights Day, Eleven Hundred Springs and more.
Get big savings at places like Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, Hiatus Spa + Retreat and Paper & Chocolate. The latter is offering 20 percent off Christmas cards.
