In the Hudson Valley, the commercial craze takes hold all the way from Albany to Westchester, offering locals the chance to check off everyone on their list…and save some serious dollars while doing it (a major win amid days of high gas prices and inflation).

Whether they focus on online or in-person shopping, the Hudson Valley’s storefronts pull out all the stops with Black Friday deals — and even some Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday specials — to kickstart the holiday season. So what are you waiting for? Scroll through this list of discounts, then set your alarm for a bright and early wake-up call. Happy shopping, Hudson Valley!
