December 1, 2023
Christmas 2023 is upon us! These days, online retailers and big box stores have made it even more difficult for locally owned businesses to stay afloat. Especially during the all important holiday shopping season between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We want to bring the focus back to shopping local, that’s the goal of “Tinsel- A Chaffeured Shopping Experience.” This fun event started back in 2015, it’s held annually the Friday after Black Friday and has quickly become known as “Local’s Black Friday.”
Tickets are now on sale for our 9th Annual Tinsel event. Shreveport’s most unique holiday shopping experience is being held Friday, December 1st from 5-9:00 pm. Tinsel shoppers begin and end at Superior’s Steakhouse. When you buy a ticket to Tinsel, you are chauffeured, by iShuttle, to multiple stops along Line Avenue, shopping in over 30 of the area’s most popular stores, in a fun, festive after-hours environment. Along the Tinsel route, store participants offer complimentary food, beverages, entertainment, and exclusive discounts for Tinsel shoppers.
Let the fun continue! The official post-Tinsel party will be held at Cypress by the Revenir starting at 9:00 pm. Enjoy Tinsel-exclusive drink specials and entertainment by a live DJ. Access to the post-Tinsel party is included with your $35 Tinsel ticket.
Stay tuned! We’ll unveil this year’s participating retailers soon.
