If there is one thing Soirée loves about holidays in the capital city, it’s shopping local and supporting the businesses that make Little Rock what it is.
This week, for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, we’re ditching the megastores and spending our dollars at local shops around the metro. While many businesses are participating in Small Business Saturday, others are offering deals all weekend long. Be sure to check each shop’s website and social media pages for details.
The Thanksgiving weekend deals won’t last forever, so be sure to plan out your stops before you shop. Below, we’ve mapped out some of the city's notable locations by neighborhoods
Downtown & Argenta
Complete with some of the city's best views, there's plenty to peruse and purchase near the river. Museum and specialty shops are interspersed with longtime local retailers, while the revitalization of SoMa and ongoing efforts in the River Market have also brought new boutiques and shops brimming with locally made goods.
