With Black Friday around the corner Flagstaff is offering an alternative to normal chaos of shopping at larger department stores on Black Friday.

Lisa Lamberson, owner of Mountain Sports, says local residents are encouraged to come have a more leisurely experience on Black Friday visiting local shops downtown.Teresa Banks, local shopper, says she hates the idea of Black Friday and when she goes shopping makes a list so she is ready to shop.

Aaron Archuleta, Flagstaff General Store, discuses how locally owned stores are participating in "Slack Friday", if shoppers are more interested in a casual shopping experience.
