Locally-owned merchants across America have faced increased competition in recent years from big box and online retailers. This especially rings true during the all important holiday shopping season between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Seeing a need to bring a focus back to locally-owned shopping, “Tinsel – A Chauffeured Shopping Experience” was born in 2015. Known as “Local’s Black Friday”, the event occurs each year, 7 days after Black Friday.
Tickets are now on sale for the 5th Annual Tinsel! Shreveport’s most unique holiday shopping experience is set for Friday December 6, from 5-9 pm. Tinsel shoppers begin and end at Superior Steakhouse, and are chauffeured to multiple stops along Line Avenue, shopping in the area’s most popular stores, in a private after-hours environment. Participating stores offer a variety of complimentary food, beverage, entertainment, and discounts for Tinsel shoppers. The evening ends at the official Tinsel Afterparty.
iShuttle, LLC returns as our Transportation Sponsor, providing patrons with private chauffeur service along the Line Avenue corridor. Superior’s Steakhouse will host the Official Afterparty, which will include drink specials for participants.
We will announce this year’s participating retailers soon. Your $30 Tinsel ticket includes: private transportation, after-hours access to all participating retailers; food, beverage, and exclusive discounts provided by the retailers; and access to the afterparty including drink specials.
