Bossier City, La (KMSS) — Big retail stores are popular during the holiday shopping season but how are small businesses in the area preparing for Black Friday.
Managers at Funky Fleur-De-Lis in Bossier City says they are expecting some heavy traffic this Friday despite the rush to the much larger retail store.
They also tell us one of the most important ways people can help the local economy is by supporting local stores.
"It’s really important because a lot of times those bigger companies have a lot of support nationwide and we are really looking for our peers to support us in our businesses. We support the local economy, we support local jobs," said Assistant Manager Danielle Harrison.
Millions of Americans are expected to participate in Black Friday at the end of the week.
