The Prince George Citizen - 2021-11-25


Downtown hosting Plaid Friday event


Downtown Prince George is hosting Plaid Friday Nov. 26 encouraging residents to shop locally for their unique items at businesses in the core of the city. Ever wonder why plaid for such an occasion? The plaid pattern represents the weaving of individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses, said a recent Downtown P.G. press release. There are more than 90 shops and special services, 35 cafes and restaurants to explore in the heart of the city. Plaid Friday is the Prince George version of Black Friday and will go all day. The plaid patrol will be on duty from 4 to 6 p.m. and if shoppers are wearing plaid or using a special Downtown P.G .shopping bag there may be a reward of some cool plaid swag or some LOVEBUCKS to be spent at a favourite downtown business. There will be some festive music playing and patrons can enter to win a gift basket. Make it a social media event and take photos with friends and family to share on the Plaid Friday Facebook page to win lunch for six at a downtown restaurant.
