I’ve never really been the biggest fan of Black Friday, as I’ve honestly only ever shopped on Black Friday twice and one of those times was accidental.
I love how some stores, such as REI, are closing their stores today so that their customers and employees can be with family and friends instead. I’m also loving REI’s Opt Outside initiative for today and how some states are even following it. For instance, if you’re in Oregon today the State Parks fees are waived so you can go hiking, walking, and biking without having to pay. How awesome is that?!
P.S. Here’s a list of other states that are waiving State Park fees.
