While some of you are planning your Thanksgiving feast, we at the Arizona Daily Star are planning our biggest newspaper of the year.

Thursday’s Star will be packed with Black Friday (and, in some cases, Thanksgiving night) deals from stores in every corner of the Tucson area.

Here’s what you can expect: pages and pages of coupons and special offers you can’t find anywhere else. And as usual, you’ll find local and national news and sports coverage packed inside.

We’re also launching this year’s “ThanksGIVEaway” promotion. Look for the “ThanksGIVEaway” ad in this Thursday’s paper and enter the contest via the special web address in that ad. We’ll award three $100 gift cards to local readers who enter. One lucky reader in the markets served by the Star’s parent company, Lee Enterprises Inc., will win $5,000.

Thanks for reading throughout the year. And I wish you a happy holiday season.
