New Orleans small businesses reflect on Black Friday traffic and give shoppers a chance to win $200
NEW ORLEANS —The New Orleans Business Alliance is announcing the return of a local shopping campaign, Homegrown Holidays, as a part of ongoing efforts to support local businesses.
WDSU spoke to the business owners of Wicks Nola Candle Co, Baldwin & Co., and Nice Guys Bar and Grill about their traffic of shoppers this Black Friday.
Those who shop at one of the 50 participating businesses across seven high-impact, disinvested New Orleans neighborhoods, including Treme, New Orleans East, Gert Town/Hollygrove, Algiers, Lower Ninth Ward, and Gentilly, between Black Friday and New Year’s Eve, will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $200 cash prize.
As local business owners continue to rebound post-pandemic, NOLABA encourages shoppers to shop locally to help contribute to the city’s long-term recovery going into the new year.
“Homegrown Holidays is helping people invest in local entrepreneurship and nurturing a sense of community and pride within our neighborhoods and small business community. I’m excited to partner with NOLABA for a second year to increase profitability and grow, not just my business, but the entire city,” said Dj Johson, owner at Baldwin & Co. Coffee + Bookstore, in a statement.
