A trend in the wrong direction.
Most people recognize the Friday after Thanksgiving as “Black Friday”. While it was once considered the best way to jumpstart holiday shopping, it has become less relevant recently. Most retailers have started to offer deals all month long. Some stores don’t even wait for the pumpkin pie to settle and are even open ON THANKSGIVING (to which we say ‘not cool!’). This year, we hope you’ll join us to support a nationwide, emerging movement in retail sales called “Plaid Friday”.
Remember what it’s about.
This is still a day of spectacular deals but it aims to bring us back to the true intention of the holidays by encouraging shoppers to shop from local and small businesses.
Just as plaid represents unique colors, woven together into a larger tapestry, small businesses are the fabric of strong communities.
Turning away from the temptation (and headache) of frenzied mega-sales at the big box stores, you can give gifts that you wrap and many that you can’t.
- Give yourself the gift of easier parking, cheerful and helpful sales people, happy fellow shoppers!
- Gift yourself the experience of buying face to face from someone who is really invested in their business and intent on making you happy with an authentic, quality experience that’s much more than a transaction. It’s a relationship!
- Give the gift of healthy communities. Even if you purchase from a small business online that’s not in your town, you are still supporting a community somewhere! A business that gives back in direct and indirect ways.
So this Friday, after you have observed a day of thanks with family and friends (or however you celebrate the day!), join us in wearing plaid and shopping local and small! TechRestore will have some amazing deals and we’ll make sure you’re getting the best possible service all the way through. Our parking lot is big and easy to get to. We won’t brush you off if you have a question or concern. We are TechRestore! And we’re here as your tech specialists this holiday.
At the bottom of our home page, there’s a place to sign up for our weekly newsletter. Sign up today so you’ll always be first to know about our in-store and online specials. We’ll do a special blog later this week with all the PLAID FRIDAY deals, you won’t want to miss it.
The TechRestore Family wishes you and yours a very happy, warm and safe Thanksgiving and holiday season. Before you know it, it’ll be 2020 – a new decade!
