Around southern Maine, plenty of stores will open their doors early for Black Friday – some even Thanksgiving evening. That includes many local and independent businesses who are hoping to turn Black Friday a little plaid this year. The Plaid Friday movement is the local-shop alternative to the Black Friday at the big box stores. (We already try to be thoughtful about what we buy and who we buy for – it makes sense to also be thoughtful about who we buy from.)

Just a quick reminder to head into town to do some holiday shopping, eating or imbibing today. This is a great opportunity to jump start the shopping season and support local businesses. Oh! And we have coupons!
I’ll be braving the crowds in town on Friday to get started on holiday shopping. Here are some spots you might want to check out including local deals, sales, coupons and more. Just be sure to treat yourself at a local bar when it’s all over.
