Short North Arts District shoppers who venture out on the busiest day of the year will be rewarded with a different kind of Black Friday experience, one with beautifully decorated shop windows and one-of-a-kind gifts. Apart from the picturesque setting, the best part is the limited edition Short North Gothic reusable tote bags available at select retailers while supplies last on Friday, November 24, and Saturday, November 25. Support the Buckeyes at your favorite Short North Arts District watering hole as they play on the home turf of that team up north, then do a little celebratory shopping and support even more local businesses on Small Business Saturday.
