I’m so excited for this Friday!! Why? It is Plaid Friday!! What is Plaid Friday, you might ask? Well, the name Plaid Friday celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent 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. Many local retailers in Russell will be participating in Plaid Friday and will have SPECIAL promotions just for coming in. I stopped in at Tiny Toes Baby Boutique and they said they will be having special discounts on Plaid Friday! Go to the Plaid Friday website to check out the participating businesses here in Russell! Stay tuned, I will be counting down the days until PLAID FRIDAY!
