The number of nationwide sales available before, on, and after Black Friday borders on insanity. Some retailers actually offer good deals. Others take meager discounts in hopes that you'll be so wrapped up in the shopping frenzy that you won't notice that they're barely offering a discount. Whether you're beating down the door at a big box or department store or strolling past neighborhood boutiques, you're going to encounter sales this weekend. Here, alphabetically, are the discounts and specials you can find in San Francisco's local boutiques. If you know of a sale that should be on the list, hit us up in the comments or by email. We'll keep updating as new information rolls in.
