Downtown Prince George Plans Evening Shopping Event
Prince George, B.C. – It’s been billed as an alternative to Black Friday, and it’s happening in Prince George tomorrow night.
Organized by Downtown PG, over 30 businesses are participating in Plaid Friday – an effort designed to help boost downtown businesses during the holiday shopping season.
Participating merchants will stay open until 8 p.m. (restaurants will keep regular hours). Shoppers will be treated to strolling carolers and free holiday photos (you could also win a prize for wearing plaid).
Shoppers are also encouraged to pick up their Downtown Prince George Holiday Shopping Passport – a program that will run from this Friday through until January 7.
The passports will be available at Hubspace, Injoy Studio and Boutique, Loved Always Children’s Boutique and The Final Chapter. Click here for more information.
Trish Bella, owner of Loved Always Children’s Boutique, is a big supporter of both programs.
“We are very excited. It’s such a positive promotion for the independent retailers downtown. This is going to be a fun event for customers to come down and just see everything that the local independent stores offer in the downtown core.”
She says events like these are a big deal for smaller merchants and is appreciative of the work Downtown PG does.
“We don’t necessarily have the dollars to put into the promoting of our businesses all the time. They do a lot of work for a number of us down here and it’s great to promote the area so people know.”
