Shop Local: Small Business Saturday on November 30

Small Business Saturday

We all know about Black Friday. In fact, some people line up to catch those coveted holiday sales Thanksgiving evening. It’s a retail frenzy. But fairly new to the scene is Small Business Saturday®, which bodes well for both Lake Tahoe business owners and visitors alike. Instead of long lines at corporate retailers on Black Friday, Saturday, November 30, is dedicated to the boutiques, eateries and local businesses that deserve your patronage.

So go ahead, sleep in on Friday. Come check out the plethora of sales going on around North Lake Tahoe on Saturday! We recommend perusing the Village at Squaw, taking a stroll through downtown Tahoe City, and Commercial Row in Historic Downtown Truckee.

To sweeten the pot, Tahoe City has a SHOP LOCAL holiday contest running from November 29 thru January 10, where you receive one sticker for every $25 spent at participating Tahoe City retailers. Four stickers allows your entry into a raffle prize drawing!
