Sayonara, pumpkin spice:

Black Friday’s back!

  • Let’s not forget Thanksgiving! Turkey Day is quickly approaching, which means Black Friday is not far away and many retailers are beginning to release their Black Friday deals and store hours. A number of stores have decided to remain open on Thanksgiving in the past few years. Macy’s announced that they will once more open at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving. Sears will also open at 6, close at 2 a.m. and re-open at 5 a.m. on Black Friday. TJ Maxx, Bed Bath and Beyond and Home Depot are among retailers who say they will wait to open their doors until after Thanksgiving.

Savannah heading back to big screen:

  • Last week, the trailer for the upcoming film, “Dirty Grandpa,” was released. Parts of the movie were filmed on Tybee Island earlier this year. The film stars Robert di Niro who fools his grandson, Zac Efron, into taking him on a road trip to Daytona beach. “Dirty Grandpa” reportedly hits theaters Jan. 22, 2016.
