Black Friday Store Maps: Where The Deals Are

One of the major keys to a successful in-store Black Friday experience is knowing where the retailer's putting the deals, and how that store is laid out.

Click on any store name below and you'll find the only hand-drawn deal maps in the country (exclusive to our network of stations). I only mapped out the 8 stores below since the lay-outs are similar from one location to the next. Some store sections will differ slightly, others may be the mirror image of a map. Knowing a store's layout could easily put a deal in your hands first.

Happy Shopping!

The Eights Bistro: Helping Locals Go Veggie

The Eights Bistro: Helping Locals Go Veggie

Back in July of 2009, Alli and myself actually ordered a pizza in this exact location.  However, at the time it was Campieri’s and the menu was mainly focused on artisanal or “fancy” pizzas.  We enjoyed the meal but not the service and unfortunately never made a return visit before the ultimately closed their doors; then in the fall/winter of 2010 The Eights came to be.

The location itself hasn’t changed too much, at least from what I can remember, and I noticed a lot of art work on the walls (all of which is for sale).  I forgot how nice this building was, with their exposed brick and a nice long wooden bar, right now I am wondering why I don’t walk down there for a beer/snack more often.

What are 1st Graders Thankful For?

When St. Vincent de Paul holds its annual Thanksgiving lunch, the entire school gets involved. Kevin O'Neill stopped by the busy school in the Springbrook area of Elma.  He interviewed first graders about their favorite foods, and about what they are thankful for.  The results are priceless!

Dog Park Safety

Dog Park Safety

Dog parks are great places for dogs to play and socialize with other dogs. Unfortunately, the fun can sometimes turn violent. Without proper knowledge, a dog and its handler are both subject to injury.

Robin Bennett, an author and trainer with All About Dogs in Woodbridge, Va., believes that in order for dog parks to be safe, dogs need to be properly supervised. This means that dog owners must know what to watch for if problems arise between the dogs.

“Early warning signs indicating that a dog is stressed include lip licking, yawning, half moon eyes, stiffening and avoidance,” Bennett said. “These signals all happen before things get too far out of hand.”
