Floating Share Widget
From countless outdoor activities to the downtown scene in Las Vegas, the Nevada retail experience is unlike any other. Watch as U.S. Representative Cresent Hardy, LVCVA’s Rossi Ralenkotter, the Retail Association of Nevada’s Lea Tauchen and small business owners Mike Debold and Polly Weinstein discuss retail’s impact on the state’s economy and its communities.
In Nevada, retail supports 371,000 jobs and contributes more than $23 billion to the state’s economy.
NRF and the Retail Association of Nevada visited retailers in Reno and Las Vegas during the Retail Across America road trip. Check out more videos in this series, featuring companies like Zappos, Container Park, Stitch Factory, The Jeweler's Daughter, Writer's Block, Reno Fly Shop, High Sierra Cycling, and The Shops at Crystals.
Downtown Las Vegas houses a booming culture beyond the Strip, but that wasn’t always the case. Thanks to The Downtown Project and an influx of retail companies like Zappos, Container Park, Stitch Factory, The Jeweler’s Daughter and Writer’s Block, residents and tourists alike now enjoy a thriving and growing community.
The outdoor retail industry completes the Nevada experience. We went behind the scenes with Reno Fly Shop and High Sierra Cycling to explore how these retailers not only provide the perfect products, but also the expertise to help their customers enjoy the great outdoors in Nevada.
A trip to the casino is on everyone’s Las Vegas to-do list, but that’s not all it takes to make a trip to Vegas complete. We spoke with LVCVA’s Rossi Ralenkotter, The Shops at Crystals’ Farid Matraki and retail entrepreneurs Polly Weinstein and Drew Cohen to find out why visitors shouldn’t miss out on the Las Vegas shopping experience.
