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!
These businesses pledge to photograph customers decked out in plaid and answer questions about Plaid Friday and Monadnock Buy Local.
Wearing plaid on Plaid Friday? Be sure to get your photo taken with Local Photographer Kimberly Peck. Monadnock Buy Local will add photos to our annual collage, celebrating all who wore plaid and showed their support for locally owned businesses and our local economy. Where's her booth? We'll let you know! Location TBA.
We'll compile a list of specials here. Stay tuned!
Plaid Friday was created in Oakland, CA to bring back the times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity. Now it is celebrated throughout the nation as part of the Shift Your Shopping Campaign.
