Green Friday is Back in 2020!
Posted on November 19 2020
Because of its great success in getting people outside and enjoying nature that day after Thanksgiving, we've decided to bring Green Friday back in 2020! In a time when social distancing is all the rage and of utmost importance, this calmer alternative to fighting the crowds for Black Friday shopping just feels like the right thing to do this year.
Here's owner Wendy Clark talking about this year's Green Friday festivities:
Just like last year, we're asking folks to go out birding on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Fly solo, bring along your household, or meet up with your "pandemic pod" or "quaranteam," if you have one. Snap a selfie or take a video while you hold up a sign that says "#greenfriday." Then head over to our Facebook page and post your masterpiece. That link, if you need it, is here: https://www.facebook.com/RedstartBirding.
We'll select one winner to receive a free Steiner HX 8x42 binocular. By simply participating, you'll be building the community and showing off your dedication to birding over bad vibes brought about by Black Friday bluster.
And don't worry. We'll still have some fantastic optics deals to offer (click here to check them out!).
Our hard-working staff will be taking November 27 off for their own rest, relaxation, and recreation, but you can send an offline message through our chat platform, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a voicemail at 833-262-1568. They'll get back to you when they return to their stations on Cyber Monday!
We hope to see your #greenfriday selfies on Facebook this year. Happy birding!
