What you shouldn’t do this election is plan to shop at Patagonia on Nov. 8. As part of the store’s Vote Our Planet initiative, Patagonia is closing all stores nationwide — including the Georgetown branch. People are encouraged to go to the polls and “champion local environmental issues and engage in civil society,” according to press release.
