The prospect of going out on Black Friday is more daunting than ever, with many of the big box retailers even starting their sales on Thanksgiving Day. Avoid the stress of overcrowded chain stores by supporting your local non profit. With five unique retail locations and beneficial programs for developmentally disabled children and adults, Little Red Hen stores are a welcome addition to Black Friday.
All of Little Red Hen's sales go back into its supportive employment programs. Along with our retail stores, these programs include Park & Garden, Online, and our newest program Tools & Trade. Supporting Little Red Hen means supporting job skills and training for over 125 disabled adults. At Tools & Trade, these skills include carpentry, painting, and more.
Many of our items are unique or handmade; such as macrame, jewelry, and sun-catchers. Little Red Hen also repurposes furniture and searches for hard to find antiques, offering a selection unlike any other destination you will visit on Black Friday. Kitchen Store, Gift Shop, and Floral & More teach the art of beautiful store displays, as well as strong and friendly customer service.
Vintage Hen's new downtown location is a one of a kind antique and collectibles store. While also focusing on customer service and creative display tables, Vintage Hen also includes writing online descriptions for Vintage Hen's online Etsy page, photography and lighting.
Little Red Hen Plant Nursery and Park & Garden teach plant care and maintenance, including planting and growing many trees and vegetables. These programs also teach nutrition, healthy eating habits, and sustainability.
Little Red Hen Online brings all the stores together, and teaches web page design, online inventory and shipping. This also includes publishing and creative writing skills through social media and blog posts, just like this one. Little Red Hen Online leads the promotions department that creates many of the signs, emails, and marketing materials for Little Red Hen using programs like Photoshop and InDesign.
So this Black Friday, be sure to visit one of our many retail locations, or even make a donation to give back to a worthy cause. Little Red Hen is the perfect way to spend your hard earned dollars on something local, sustainable, and easy on your wallet.
