Astute shoppers know that Reno retailers are already having sales and promotions, well before the Black Friday shopping frenzy. Even so, the big shopping malls and stores throughout the Truckee Meadows are flogging their Black Friday prices and coming up with all kinds of incentives, deals, and entertainment to attract spending at their establishments. They know it's going to be tough competing for the limited number of dollars most of us have to spend during the holiday season.

Early openings on Black Friday are getting earlier. The Legends at Sparks Marina is doing 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, with many others throwing the doors open at midnight and well before sunrise. My Black Friday article is a good place to start if you plan on joining the fray.

Don't overlook our many locally-owned businesses for your holiday shopping. Supporting our neighborhood merchants is one of the best ways to boost the local economy and keep those dollars circulating right here in the Reno / Tahoe region.

Attention Local Business Owners - Tell us about your locally-owned business; how you got started, what you do, why people should do business with you, etc. Telling your story is a great way to attract new customers, and it's free.
