Refusing to allow the economic downturn to halt growth and commerce, the local shopping scene evolved nicely this year with more than 40 stores opening and a handful more slated to open before year’s end. In addition, consumers celebrated the debut of retail center Tivoli Village at Queensridge in Summerlin, which features almost a dozen retail merchants fresh on the Vegas scene.
