A ‘colorful’ alternative to Black Friday

Crowds and stress and waking up at dawn on Black Friday? No thanks!

Why not choose to spend your hard-earned dollars to support
your local small-business owners in Downtown Nashua instead?

Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative
to the big box store “Black Friday” chaos.

Wear your plaid, and visit with our local and independently owned downtown businesses as we kick off the holiday season! Those donning plaid will be eligible for giveaways, discounts, and other fun activities throughout the day!

There’s something for everyone on your list at one of our locally owned stores. From high-end jewelry, furniture, beer and wine, and custom-made clothing and gifts, to restaurant gift cards and more, shop local and
keep Nashua business alive and thriving!

First stop: 110 Main St. for your Swag Bag!

Please reserve tickets HERE so we’ll know you’re coming! Stop by the Nashua Telegraph office from 10 am – 5 pm and grab your Swag Bag. It holds your map of participating venues, as well as dozens of coupons, discounts and offers. Even the tote bag is plaid! 

Wear plaid, save green!

Visit our local and independently owned downtown businesses on Friday, Nov. 26. Those donning plaid will be eligible for giveaways, discounts, and other fun activities!

Need plaid? Shop local!

Join in the fun and grab your plaid gear ahead of Friday. One place to check out: Snap! It’s Vintage, 33 Main St., has loads of vintage plaids to enhance your wardrobe with fun!
