In case you haven’t heard, Plaid Friday is an alternative to the infamous Black Friday, as the day after Thanksgiving has become known. Since it’s one of the biggest shopping days of the year, it could very well take a business out of the red and into the black.
I’m not advocating putting any business “into the plaid,” but money spent at local and independent shops rather than the big box stores keeps the funds in your community and supports your friends and neighbors. That’s the whole idea behind Plaid Friday.
Check out the official Plaid Friday site to find out more, find participating businesses, and, if you’re a business owner, you can download a Plaid Friday placard for your window.
But a business doesn’t have to have a placard in order for us to support it!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and good shopping!
