Remember when we all camped out in front of a fire, not a storefront, on the day after Thanksgiving? Once upon a time, that Friday was a day for family and friends and long-weekend activities, not fighting the crowds to get a deal in a store. When did pestering consumers with Thanksgiving-day sales become an acceptable way to do business? When we retailers chose to bombard you with marketing messages instead of good wishes. So this year, at Twisted Throttle, we’re putting our boot down. We think it’s time to bring back the true meaning of Thanksgiving: enjoying the people and experiences that matter to you. So we’re doing things a little differently this year.
This Black Friday, we’re closing our doors so our staff can spend time doing whatever makes them happy. A few people have volunteered to man the phones that day, for customers who didn’t get the memo (and for those of you who still want to place orders).
In the spirit of REI’s #OptOutside campaign, we’d like to share what the Twisted staff will be up to this Black Friday. As you can see below, we’re planning to do everything from wrenching to riding, sleeping to hiking, decorating to baking. Spending time with our pets, our family, and maybe just ourselves. Finding adventure in little things and big things. At least one of us will be eating copious amounts of pie.
Though we spend a lot of time extolling the benefits of motorcycling experiences, we know that adventure comes in all forms. It can happen anywhere, anytime — especially when you take a moment to appreciate what’s right in front of you. We wish you and yours the very best this holiday season, and we hope you find time to enjoy all the things that are important to you.
