Small Businesses in the area hope to compete with the Black Friday sales by offering their own deals to encourage local shopping.  Here are some great black Friday deals from local businesses in the Tampa Bay area.

Murielle Winery is a Clearwater winery that focuses on fruity flavored wine. Their bottles are great gift ideas since the flavorings are unique and very “Florida” – perfect for an out of state relative or friend. Murielle Winery’s Second Annual Black Friday event will be on Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Not only can you taste all the wine before you purchase at this event, but all the fruit infused wines will be on sale for just $11 a bottle. Flavors include Bing Cherry Cabernet, Peach Apricot Chardonnay, and Green Apple Riesling.

City Street Sweets is located in Hyde Park Village and will be featuring a "Sweet Friday" this year. From 10am-9pm, they will feature a Sweet Holiday Chocolate Bar Making Social. Additionally, there will be chocolates to sample and discounts on their sweet items.
