Businesses of all types getting in on black Friday deals

Posted: Updated:

A hot yoga class may be the last place you'd expect hot Black Friday deals. But businesses of all stripes got in on the deals

Small business owner Luke Strandquist said “Initially you just think of a big box store but more small businesses are branching out so why not offer something to get them in the door?"

Bikram Yoga NYC offered discount yearly passes at Bikramyoganyc.com

It’s not just big box stores, everyone wanted a piece of the estimated $60 billion being spent this weekend.

A carwash offered a free exterior cleaning.

And how is this for an oddball Black Friday offer?

Dr. Katayoun Yaraghi-Josephs, owner of Cascada Dental spa said he wanted to offer his patients and prospective patients something to make them feel better about themselves look better for the holidays.

So his business is now offering to get you're teeth-whitened plus a full beauty makeover at bargain prices.

There are also free adoptions. In the cutest black Friday deal around, North Shore Animal Rescue waived the adoption fees for these furry friends

“We have puppies, kittens,” said Christina Travalja, the animals shelter’s Director. “Everyone is doing Black Friday shopping but after that you can save a life.”

And if all these deals are overwhelming, just do some bikram yoga. It’s a great deal.

The organization's members were also required to help run the stand that went up at Broadway and 23rd Street on Wednesday.

    Times Square characters want to be taken seriously and want their tips. The mostly immigrant workers are now called the Association of Artists United for a Smile and are fighting to protect their jobs, in light of a recent crackdown. Jorge Duran says he stands around for hours, sweating inside a costume, and says it is annoying and unfair if he poses for a good picture and gets nothing.
