Museum Store Sunday offers shopping variety

CARSON CITY, Nev. (KOLO) Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday are all popular shopping days, but this year "Museum Store Sunday" is making a name for itself in more than 500 museums around the world.

Four of Nevada's state museums participated in the event including the Nevada State Museum Carson City, the Nevada State Museum Las Vegas, the Lost City Museum in Overton and the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City.

"We're hoping it's going to be the start of something really new and offering different things for holiday shoppers," Lara Brown, manager at the Nevada State Railroad Museum, said.

All the stores offered discounts on items in the stores and Charmain Philips, manager at the Nevada State Museum Carson City, said the stores offer gifts people can't get anywhere else.

"We're excited about it and hopefully it goes really well and we'll be able to continue this on an annual basis," Philips said.
