WOW- Thanksgiving is only one week away! That happened fast. I want to wish everyone safe travels! The week before Thanksgiving is traditionally the one of the busiest travel weeks of the year so please be safe.
Why is the day after Thanksgiving in the USA becoming such a CRAZY shopping day? Are the deals that good? I couldn’t tell you- I have no intention of getting up at some ungodly hour to try to save $5 on something from Walmart. As a gym club owner, I truly believe that we need to support LOCAL business. Don’t make this Friday just another “Black Friday”. Make it a “Plaid Friday”
The name Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent and local businesses. Plaid Friday is the fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays.
Plaid Friday was conceptualized in Oakland, CA, a city known for strong shop local campaigns. Plaid Friday brings back the neighborly nostalgic times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity. The seacoast of New Hampshire and Maine have a long tradition of local businesses. Let’s celebrate the local businesses and our local flair.
During the week following Thanksgiving (11/28-12/3) ATLANTIC GYMNASTICS is giving out $10 coupons to any family who shows us receipts adding up to $100 from LOCALLY owned and operated businesses. These coupons can be used on any new or second class or any apparel.
HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING! And remember to SHOP LOCAL!
