Each year, the Friday after Thanksgiving is generally marketed as a flock-to-the-mall affair with insane
lines deals. In the Town, we take a different approach and instead celebrate Plaid Friday, supporting local, independent retailers!
On Friday, November 25th, the Oaklandish team is putting together some seriously exciting events. Since Plaid Friday emphasizes buying local and supporting small businesses in your own community, we have a special plaid tote bag promotion to reward our loyal customers and say thanks! At both our Dimond and downtown Oakland retail stores, any purchase $75 dollars or more will earn you a free Plaid Friday tote (while supplies last)!
In addition to the tote bag promotion, we will be hosting The Hieroglyphics Crew at our downtown location all day on the 25th! That’s right, the legendary Oakland-based hip-hop group will have merch available for sale at 1444 Broadway from 10am to 8pm, including their custom Golden Era ‘Just Did It’ Nike Airmax 95’s!
We will also be hosting an event at our newest store BOSK to ring in Plaid Friday in Old Oakland. We’ll open at 10am, offering 10% off purchases over $75, 15% off purchases over $100, and 20% off purchases over $200. From 3pm-8pm, we will have DJ@LUS providing live tunes and we will be unveiling a special “Ugly Sweater” ice cream flavor that we helped to create with the help of the kind folks over at Little Giant Ice Cream. From 5-8pm, Little Giant will be providing the scoops, both for sale and redeemable with a special ticket given to everyone receiving the special Plaid Friday tote bag at the Oaklandish retail locations. There will also be free beer in the evening for folks 21 and up.
We are looking forward to these two awesome events and hope to see all of the Town out shopping locally on the 25th!
