Peapods Plaid Friday SaleBlack Friday's Gone Plaid!

For years, we've been on a quest to make Black Friday less blechy. Now, we're 
joining with dozens of other locally-owned indie stores across the Twin Cities to rebrand the day altogether--we're calling it Plaid Friday!

Forget waiting in cold parking lots outside big box stores! Plaid Friday is about fun, adventure, and locally-grown savings. Check out Plaid Friday's Facebook page for more details.

At Peapods, we'll have dozens of amazing door-busting deals at 40-50% off (stay tuned for more details!), super-cool door prizes, and, of course, hot cider. Plus, wear plaid and save an additional 5% off your entire purchase!

Seriously, this Plaid Friday will be bigger and better than any of our previous Black Fridays!
