Rapid City stores bring in Black Friday shoppers in unique ways

Posted:

By now we're all familiar with those famous ad's, chain stores with door buster savings, opening as early as Thanksgiving night.
 
But local stores are also fighting for holiday shoppers, though not in the same way. Many local businesses like Shangri La Boutique in Rapid City will be open on Black Friday, but they won't try to compete with the box stores.

Owner Angelica Wojtanowicz, says they will be offering their guests a VIP experience.

She says they will still have sales but also offer food, refreshments, and other promotions.

She says her store as well as others in downtown are looking to provide a more fun and relaxing shopping experience for everyone.
 
"Downtown has done so much and improved so much over the last 2 years. I think it's important the locals do come down and support downtown, and it's fun, I mean, there's stuff down here for everyone," says Wojtanowicz.
 
But, when we asked consumers about shopping local, it seems drown out in a sea of advertising.

"I probably just go because of the advertising, in the flyers I see I don't ever see anything about the local stores, the items they have or anything," says Amanda Dutton of Rapid City.
 
Downtown businesses will be taking part in Small Business Saturday, a nationwide campaign to get people to shop local for the holidays.
