Earlier than the Bird shopping event returns to Benicia

By From page B6 | November 13, 2012

FAIRFIELD — First Street retailers in Benicia will host the fifth annual Earlier than the Bird shopping event from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday. Shoppers are welcome to wear their pajamas.

The event takes its name from the fact that it happens the weekend before Thanksgiving; hence, the phrase refers to the turkey. The idea is to capture holiday shopping dollars earlier than Black Friday.
