Plaid is the new black, Shop local & independent this holiday season, banner from Metro IBA

Plaid is the new black!

We reopen bright & early at 7 AM on "Black Friday" – or "Plaid Friday" as the Metro Independent Business Alliance calls it – to kick off the winter holiday season. And we remind consumers to consider shopping local & independent all season long!

Like the limitless mix & match possibilities of plaid, independent businesses add character & diversity to a neighborhood. And we feel a greater responsibility toward the community – we are the people you'll see actively supporting area causes & organizations. By frequenting local businesses, you're investing in your own community & quality of life. We are proud to be in good company; find a few of our independent neighbors on this Buy Local Twin Cities Plaid Friday map. Or browse their website to find a complete directory of Metro IBA members.

Whether you call it "Black Friday," "Plaid Friday" or "Small Business Saturday," think out of the big box store. Keep your dollars local and shop sanely at small, friendly Hampden Park Co-op. We have great gifts and, of course, great food!
