PETERBOROUGH — The Monadnock Region was a sea of plaid on Friday, a sign of support for local businesses that compete with big box stores on Plaid Friday.
Plaid Friday was the brain-child of a gallery owner on the West Coast fed up with with the Black Friday hype. Monadnock Buy Local quickly got on board and its has spread throughout the region.
A few years later, Toadstool Bookshop owner Willard Williams started his own shop local movement to answer to Cyber Monday.
