Annapolis Capital Gazette (Newspaper) - November 24, 2011, Annapolis, Maryland Ready, set, shop Local, national retailers brace for holiday shoppers By SHANTEE WOODARDS Staff Writer Black Friday doesn't mean much to Andy Smith, especially since he can't open his business in the middle of the night or offer extravagant deals. But the owner of Jimmy and Sook on Main Street is relying on the day after the biggest holiday shopping day to gain new shoppers. He is part of the Small Business Saturday movement, in which shoppers are encouraged to spend dollars at locally own6d businesses instead of big-box stores. Instead of dramatic markdowns. Smith's specialty clothing store will offer free hats with certain purchases, free gift wrapping and extra special attention. "We usually just do an average day on Black Friday," said Smith, owner of the specialty clothing store that has locations in Annapolis, St. Michaels and Irvington, Va. "Customers hit the big shops and take advantage of the price savings," he said. "It's hard for us to compete with the sales that the bigger retailers have. We have to make it up with something we can do. We can kill them with customer service." Both Westfield Annapolis maU and Arundel Mills mall will get a jump on Black Friday by opening at midnight. Marley Station Mall will open at 4 a.m. tomorrow. Despite the promotions, experts do not (See SHOP, Page A16) INSIDE .

Martin O'MaUey. The districts lump people from such different communities into the same congressional district in such a way that representative government becomes meaningless, according to Republican Del. Ron George and five other plaintiffs. Gerrjrmandering undermines local communities and ignores established political boundaries, according to pleadings in the case. As an illustration, under O'Malley's plan, George's state legislative district. District 30, is divided into three congressional districts — 3, 4 and 5. "It is just plain wrong, you are not respecting what the people want you to do," George said yesterday. During the General Assembly special session that was called last month to adopt the new maps, critics often described O'Malley's districts as "a Rorschach test" and "an ink (See GEORGE, Page AlO) Bndge................................B8 Calendar............................C5 Classified.....................B5-B15 Comics...............................84 Death Notices....................B15 Editorial.............................Al 4 Family Living.....................CI For The Record.................A22 Lottery ...............................

For the 22nd year, the hungry have found free Thanksgiving meals on the day before the holiday at Asbury United Methodist Church in Annapolis. Yesterday, as more than 300 meals were spooned onto paper plates, diners heaped on the Thanksgiving spirit a day early. "For me, being thankful is what it's all about," said Kenneth Blue said of the Goodwill charity, which provides the food. "No matter what we don't have, there's a lot that we do have," he said. "We have our speech and our language. We have our limbs and we can move around. We have each other." The holiday's his favorite, since it's not steeped (See DINNER, Page A16) Honor Roll. .
