Hey everyone. It is almost that time again and I see online vendors posting their Black Friday sales already. I'm wondering what everyone has seen locally. I obviously know what The Reef Gallery is doing, but we aren't announcing it for another week or so, but I will say that its the greatest deal on coral that I've ever seen. Do anyone know what Aqua World, Elmer's, WetPets, even Petco are doing?

I would strongly encourage all club members and everyone else for that matter to go out and support the local stores on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday and let them know how much you appreciate them supporting the local club.

Petco has nothing really reef wise. All Aqeon aquarium starter kits will be 50% off and they will be doing their $1 gallon sale up to 29gal tanks. Since they no longer include the 40gal or 75gal it really isn't that great of a deal anymore. Petsmart has a marineland Heartland 60gal tank and stand combo for $150 plus all Top Fin Essentials starter kits for 50% off. Also all Fluval FX and Top Fin canister filters that are in stock are 50% off.

If it's crowded to shop in local department stores, I don't know if you want to. I think it's better to shop online. Just place an order and wait for the express delivery, and the price will be more favorable. Of course, this is just my idea, not on behalf of others.
Sure, some people don't like to be in public with other people. Some things I will purchase online, but livestock I like to see it in person as I know a lot of people do. Price point being more favorable is not always the case with online retailers either. I know at the store that I work, The Reef Gallery, our Black Friday coral frag deals will be better than I have ever seen at any online retailer or other brick and mortar store for that matter.

I stopped by Aquaworld last night to try and find out what they were doing but neither Jeff or Mike were there. I imagine all of our LFS would have some deals going on for Black Friday / Small Business Saturday.

Jaime, where are you guys posting your Black Friday deals for the store?

Tim
I will post it here. I know the boss is posting it to like facebook ads and places like that as well.

I hope your business is super good in those days
Thank you. Not my business, I'm just an employee.

I know there are other Acros and Zoathids and Palythoas and other LPS and SPS. This is just a list of some of the stuff that I remember while sitting at home on my couch. In my opinion selling this stuff for $5 a pop is just crazy. The whole snails and hermits for close to cost is pretty nice too. The fish deal makes it worth coming out, but the coral sale really is insane.

Passed by reef gallery at lunch today. Store is stocked big time. Jaime pointed out corals on special this weekend. I was in shock. Think I said, “this is crazy!” If anyone needs clean up crew you can be elbow deep, unreal amount of snails and crabs. Wish I could stop by there this weekend.
