November 29th is Plaid Friday, a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big store “Black Friday,” and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays… Small and independent retailers return a total of 51.1% of revenue to their local economy, and some businesses are giving back just a little bit more in different ways…

“Buy Local Week” Is December 1st-7th, 2008 The idea of this Buy Local Week is to encourage you to shop with the many great local, independent businesses here in the Pioneer Valley. By shopping locally, the presents you buy for your friends and loved ones turn out to be gifts for your community as well.
