Score on Pink Friday: Shop Small First!
What is Pink Friday?
Move over Black Friday, there's a new kid in town! And this kid is all about supporting local businesses, the backbone of our communities! Introducing Pink Friday- November 17th- a fun alternative to the chaotic shopping frenzy that takes place the day after Thanksgiving. It's all about small businesses supporting one another, community over competition, always.
Well, why not? Pink is fun, vibrant, and a little bit unexpected. It's like adding a sprinkle of glitter to your shopping cart. Plus, it's a color that represents compassion, love, and support. And that's exactly what Pink Friday is all about - showing some love to the small businesses that make our communities unique.
Shop Small First
Before you get caught up in the madness of Black Friday and the big box stores, take a moment to think about the impact your shopping choices can have. By shopping small first, you're not only supporting local entrepreneurs, but you're also investing in the dreams and aspirations of your neighbors. You have no idea how happy it makes us when we get an online say or see you walk through the door. We literally do a happy dance, drop it low, shimmy, all of it- you name it we've done it. You're the reason Ferne Boutique has been here for the last 8 years, and we're beyond grateful for your continued support.
Small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities. They bring character, charm, and a personal touch to our shopping experiences. When you support local, you're not just buying a product, you're supporting someone's passion and livelihood. And that's pretty special. We're grateful to be surrounded by so many driven and amazing entrepreneurs and small businesses in Ann Arbor and Bay City, Michigan. It's remarkable to see the hustle and it all come to life! These small businesses are here for YOU. Remember that.
