Shoppers gear up for early Sequim shopping
Sequim Gazette staff
As Sequim gobbles down the turkey, some of the city’s shoppers are expected to turn up early for Turkey Day and Black Friday openings.
Four major chains open or remain open on Thanksgiving in Sequim while many businesses open early and extend their hours on Black Friday.
If you aren’t a super shopper, some of Sequim’s jolliest traditions continue on Saturday, Nov. 30, with Santa Claus and the City Band bringing in the festive season and the Downtown Christmas Tree lighting later in the evening.
That same day, several businesses participate in Small Business Saturday.
