Corey Avenue events span Black Friday

Doors open at 10 a.m. and free, no-limit parking is available. Shoppers can stay late or come back for "Corey Stroll & Wine Taste," which starts at 5 p.m. with live music by Kevin Wilder. Some stores will be open until 8 p.m. For more information, call (727) 498-8778 or visit coreyave.com.
