Update for 2010: I still see a lot of traffic for this post coming from Google. If you’re looking for info for this year’s Bag Day, check The Northampton Chamber site for details. Hope that helps.
Yesterday, November 22, was Bag Day in Northampton. Bag Day is an event where everyone with the official bag can receive discounts at nearly all of the shops and stands in Northampton’s town center. Discounts are 20% on either a single item or your whole purchase depending on the store. I ended up getting a bunch of things that I’ve been meaning to buy (new sneakers, some books, etc). Keep your eyes open for it next year (I couldn’t find a web site, so I’ll try to post next year as soon as Heidi tells me it’s coming up.
