WEAR PLAID

Wear some plaid when you are shopping at these businesses on November 29, and take advantage of the special they are offering just to you. See the list of participating businesses below. Each may have varying hours and promotions, so follow the link to see what your favorite Downtown businesses have planned. 

A NEW TRADITION

The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of local businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses. The tradition of Plaid Friday was created in 2009 in Oakland, CA and adopted in Downtown Hillsboro in 2018. Besides creating a way to keep holiday shopping sane, it is also new way to motivate folks to shop local.
