Show your support for local and independent businesses and wear PLAID

Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of local and independent businesses. It’s a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” consumer frenzy. Also, it’s a way to show your support for Monadnock Buy Local – a network of locally owned businesses, organizations and citizens working to build a stronger local economy. So plan to wear PLAID all day on November 25th!

Plaid Friday History
