PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (WYMT) - As we all know with Thanksgiving comes Black Friday shopping, but if you are not one to hit the major retailers and fight the massive crowds some Floyd County stores might have a solution.

Several local shops are opening their doors and asking folks to shop local.

"We've just been working like little elves this week trying to get things ready," said Kindra Baker, manager of Daffodils.

For several local shops in Prestonsburg Black Friday sales are coming soon, in fact a few hours early, with doors opening at some hometown retailers Thanksgiving night.

"Excited this year because there was so much buzz in town. There were so many people that really came out to support the local businesses," said Vicki Pack, owner of Little Rascals.

These downtown shops are banding together for the second year in a row hoping to keep folks shopping at home.

"The more money you spend locally, the more money goes back to your community. You're not going to Walmart and spending your money and it goes to Arkansas or somewhere like that," said Baker.

Offering something they say is hard to find.

"I think the thing all of us offer is personal service. We know you. When we go to market we're buying for your children," said Pack.

These ladies say they do not think a little Thanksgiving snow is going to hold back the shoppers.

"I'm a shop til you drop type of woman. I've got a lot of friend who shop til you drop. Nothing will stop us. I mean we are like the U.S. Post Office. We are going to get out and get it done," said Pack.

All of these stores will be open from 9:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. on Black Friday, and then they will close until 7:00 a.m. on Black Friday:

Little Rascals
Lad 'n Lassie
Ritchies' Hallmark
