What is Plaid Friday?

Plaid Friday was created in Oakland, CA to bring back the times when shopping for friends and family was a pleasurable leisurely activity. Now it is celebrated throughout the nation. The name “Plaid Friday” celebrates the idea of LOCAL, which aims to promote the importance of supporting our community by shopping at small businesses, especially during the holiday season. It’s a fun and enjoyable alternative to the big box store “Black Friday” consumer frenzy.


HiBA is a volunteer - driven group, made up of Hudson, WI local retail shoppes and restaurants that makes its mission to educate and promote shopping/dining locally. We want to encourage people to celebrate and support our community shoppes and restaurants. Spending your money locally, not only supports our local economy, it promotes a more unique community.
