Think the mall will be a zoo on Black Friday?  Then why not head to the REAL ZOO?  Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will be open for animal viewing AND holiday shopping.  The Zoo’s gift shop is stocked with great gifts for all ages, including toys, ornaments, eco-friendly products, clothing and more.  Zoo memberships are also a great and affordable gift.  Family packages start at $72.    “Spend Black Friday with our black rhinos or North American black bears,” said Zoo Marketing & PR Manager Sue Allen. “While others claw their way through the crowds, you can simultaneously support wildlife conservation and enjoy a peaceful shopping experience with the animals.”  The zoo is open from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. daily.   Admission is $8 per person.   Kids ages 2 to 11 are $5 and children younger than 2 are free.
