How did Plaid Friday Start?
The idea of Plaid Friday was conceptualized in Oakland, CA – a community known for their strong shop local campaigns. It strives to bring back the days when shopping for friends and family during the holidays was a pleasurable and leisurely activity. Communities and businesses throughout the US and Canada now participate in the campaign. Spearheaded by Love Northern BC, communities across the North have embraced the campaign to offer events, specials and extended hours to help build awareness and entice visitors to their local shops.
What’s with the Plaid?
The plaid pattern represents weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. It also is pretty much the uniform of Northern BC!
