Mimosa Madness

Cannon Beach will host Mimosa Madness from 8-11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 29, around the town. Celebrate Black Friday with personal service, small town charm, and refreshments while you shop.

According to Kathy Kleczek of La Luna Loca, Mimosa Madness started in 2008 or 2009. Kleczek was involved in the first establishment, as well as Dena’s Shop on the Corner.

“We thought it would be good to have a local shopping event since there were people in town and they often lamented about the shops not being open and having to go to Fred Meyer or Portland to get in on Black Friday shopping,” Kleczek said. “We wanted to make it more ‘civil,’ no pushing or shoving. And certainly not at 2 a.m.”

The first year’s Mimosa Madness started at 7 a.m., which they found was too early for the Cannon Beach crowds.

“We thought, ‘let’s serve mimosas…ooh yeah,” Kleczek said. “’That would be madness!’ And that is where the name came from.”

Kleczek said they figured out what the cost of advertising, flyers and posters would be and divided that by how many businesses committed to open early and offer specials, and Mimosa Madness was born.

“Customers seem to love it and many now come every year to do their shopping during Mimosa Madness,” Kleczek said.
