Fear Not Those Dreaded Words: Holiday Shopping

Get everyone crossed off your list early this year -- as in, by the end of October -- and save some cash in the process. The Chopping Block is offering discounts of up to 20% at both the Merchandise Mart and Lincoln Square locations during the rest of the month. At the former, just spin the big wheel: whatever number comes up is the percentage discount you'll get. At the latter, you can dip into a bucket and pull your discount by hand.

And if you'd rather bet on a sure thing, just hit up the store's Customer Appreciation Days next month, where everything in the entire store will be 20% off -- no luck needed -- and you can sample wines, light hors d'oeuvres, and tasty retail products to book. The Mart's CA Day is Monday, November 1 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; the Square will fete its patrons on Thursday, November 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
