Skip the madhouse of Black Friday, Come here for PLAID Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cider Monday
We are here to offer you an alternative to shopping craziness! Advertisers have somehow developed a week of named money spending celebrations, from Grocery Store Extravaganza Wednesday (okay I made that up, but you know it is true), to Black Friday(which starts a week ahead of time), Small Business Saturday (a great idea), Cyber Monday(to do the "real" shopping online) and Giving Tuesday (don't stop with one day).
We've tweaked these a little = Plaid Friday, Indies First Small Business Saturday and Cider Monday are three days of shopping fun instead of doorbusting mayhem! We claim Plaid Fridayis more colorful, interesting and diverse than that other notorious shopping day, Indies First Small Business Saturday is a chance to support the unique book businesses in our community, and Cider Monday is just way tastier!
Here is what you have to look forward to:
PLAID FRIDAY - We will have special sales around the store, treats and hot tea samples. Today only, 20% off all NEW books, and large format "Top Shelf" books, which are great gifts by the way! No doorbusting allowed, we will open at 10:00!. Bruce Licher has announced a 30% off sale on consignment Vinyl through the weekend, so best selection today! Independent Project Press around the corner on Willow Street is also hosting a major sale from 11-4:00, so make that your next stop.
SHOP SMALL SATURDAY - is sponsored by American Express across the country. so we have some fun shopping bags to give away to the first shoppers with purchases over $25. All Nonfiction will be on sale today for 20% off, and the Vinyl sale will continue. Guaranteed to be Ice Cream weather, so all flavors will be $2 per scoop!
CIDER MONDAY - If you have to go back to work after the long weekend, skip the Amazon cart and stop in at lunch or after 5:00! We will have hot spiced cider, and the deal of the day will be 20% off all the books we have listed online. These are the most interesting books in the store, so you are sure to find some cool bargains.
GIVING TUESDAY - We do encourage you to support the important activities and programs that strengthen our community all year round. If you bring in a contribution to the Food Closet, we will give YOU a 15% discount on your used fiction purchase!
