Local Deals for Your Black Friday and Cyber Monday Holiday Shopping

Saving and Budgeting

This holiday season looks a little different from years past and that includes shopping days like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Rather than offering different deals on different days, many local Vermont retailers have modified their holiday plans and are offering sales online instead. It’s easier, faster, and safer, especially during COVID-19! We rounded up a list of deals to some of our favorite local businesses for your convenience.

Need some new clothes for your baby? Zutano Baby has two great offers. Spend under $100 and you can save 25% using code SAVE25. Spend over $100 and you can save 30% using code SAVE30.

Do you love baking during the holidays? King Arthur Flour is offering 10% savings on orders of $75, 15% off orders of $100, and a 20% discount on orders of $120 or more!
