Thursday is Thanksgiving, and that means the following days will be devoted to shopping. Black Friday is Nov. 23, and Small Business Saturday is Nov. 24. For some, that means rushing to the malls and big box stores to stand in line for bargains. But for many, it also means looking for local, small business shopping opportunities. The big companies have their deals advertised all over the place, but we want to give local businesses a chance to get the word out. Do you run a Tewksbury business? What deals are you offering this Friday and Saturday to boost traffic in your store? Leave a comment and let everyone know. You can also upload photos of your store and/or merchandise to this post.

We're back. After a brief time away, the "Where Is It?" mystery photo contest has returned. And, by popular demand, it is back in its familiar Sunday night slot. We would have been back sooner but we had to dot some "i's" and cross some "t's" relative to the contest rules. That said, take a look at this week's photo and see if you can identify the location. Email your guesses to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 27. One name will be chosen from among the correct answers to receive a newly created, limited edition (ok, so maybe not so limited) Patch T-Shirt. Complete Patch Contest Rules can be found by clicking here. Now, this week's photo might be tricky but we've given you a clue so good luck!
