Last updated 12/1/2020 at 4:35pm
Business owners in Transylvania County waded into uncharted waters in operating on Black Friday this year.
The day arrived in the wake of a challenging, and, for some, a devastating year for small businesses because of the pandemic.
For many, Black Friday is reported to be a day of significant sales before moving into winter, while others say it's not as important. According to the National Retail Federation (NFR), in 2019, a record 189.6 million U.S. consumers shopped from Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday (Nov. 30), an increase of 14 percent over 2018's 165.8 million.
