A number of Knoxville businesses and organizations will be participating in Knoxville’s Ladies Night Out this evening. Many local retailers are providing discounts and specials on products geared toward women, but restaurants and grocery stores are also getting in on the deals. Knoxville Chamber of Commerce Director Larissa Van Donselaar says it’s a good way for local businesses to work together and keep holiday shopping dollars in Knoxville. Shoppers will also have the chance to sign up for the “Gifts of Knoxville” baskets. Those baskets are made exclusively from Knoxville products; winners will be drawn tomorrow. The event runs from 5-8pm Thursday night.
