Read on to learn all about Plaid Friday!

Every year, Plaid Friday takes place on November 24th as it was made in response to Black Friday, the day known for sales after Thanksgiving. The name “Plaid Friday” came from the idea of weaving the various threads of small businesses together in order to create a strong fabric that celebrates the creativity and diversity of independent businesses. Plaid Friday is a relaxing and fun alternative to Black Friday and helps to promote independent and local businesses during the Holiday Season.

On Plaid Friday, if you want to help support local businesses, all you have to do is head to Downtown Jackson for all your shopping needs. Be sure to celebrate the day by wearing anything laid! Whether it is a plaid shirt or scarf, if you are wearing plaid, and shop at participating businesses, you will be able to receive special offers that are available only to those participating in Plaid Friday! In order to spot participating businesses, just look for the special plaid placard that will likely be posted on the outdoor window or somewhere inside the shop. This year, skip the long lines, stress and hassle that comes with Black Friday. Instead, enjoy a relaxed day where you can shop for family and friends, avoid long lines and support independent stores all at the same time! When you skip the mall, you can enjoy discounts as well as a personalized experience during Plaid Friday.
