Black Friday may be the biggest shopping event of the year, and the best way to do it is to support local businesses. The beginning of the year was difficult for many small businesses, some shuttering their doors forever as companies founded on the internet thrive with the shelter in place orders.

There’s no doubt many of us can’t wait to shop and save on Black Friday, but instead of turning to major online retailers, consider shopping local and exploring the incredible and diverse small businesses of Clermont, Winter Garden, and Windermere.

In 2019, shoppers spent an estimated $7.4 billion on Black Friday, and Amazon accounted for more than half of those sales. While online shopping is convenient, putting your hard-earned money back into our local economy helps local small businesses thrive and helps Central Florida continue to flourish.

This Black Friday, instead of searching online, check out these local Central Florida businesses and their amazing offers:

You won’t find another business quite like this. Dipped by Ade creates beautiful and tasty treats that are made to order to ensure perfect quality, taste, and freshness. Products include chocolate covered strawberries, Oreos, pretzels, and more. Contact them directly for more information and to place an order!

Shopping for a Christmas tree? Order your family tree through Homan Farms to help support this local business and our community economy. All proceeds from sales go to support missions and adoptions. There are only approximately 150 trees and when they’re gone, they’re gone. The stand is located at the Citrus Tower.

The first thing you think of when someone says Black Friday is probably retail shopping, not car detailing. This local business offers mobile car detailing services including washing, waxing, paint corrections, and full interior cleans. If you’ve been meaning to get your car washed recently, Black Friday is the perfect opportunity to reach out and hire their services.

If you’ve followed the Elite Property Sales blog for any amount of time, you probably know we love dogs. That means we know where to find the best deals on dog gear. Noodle Dog Fashion will be offering 40% off select popular products to make way for new creations. These handmade dog accessories are both cute and cost effective, and they make great holiday gifts for our fluffy friends.

Our garbage cans sit out on hot and humid Florida days, full of dirt and grime. Mighty Clean Cans is a garbage sanitation company that sanitizes your trash bins so you don’t have to worry about germs, bacteria, and weird smells. They will have their annual Black Friday promotion advertised on their social media pages so keep an eye out and get a great deal on this unique local service. Not sure what they do? Check out our Facebook video from last summer!
