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 6th Annual Tinsel! Shreveport’s most unique holiday shopping experience is set for Friday December 4th, 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.

iShuttle, LLC returns as our Transportation Sponsor, providing patrons with private chauffeur service along the Line Avenue corridor.
