Chinatown Plaza has been the main hub for Southern Nevadans to shop for Asian groceries, have a meal, or just shop at the mall-within-a-mall. As Lunar New Year celebrations started last weekend, business owners are preparing for a busy season.
Most community members say they will use the increased foot traffic to help fuel business activity, with many continuing to recover from the economic downfall caused by the pandemic.
The Lunar New Year is celebrated in several East Asian countries, including China, South Korea, and Vietnam. The holiday is a time to spend with family and incorporates traditions that invite good health, prosperity, and wealth. The “Year of the Rabbit” started on January 22, and those who celebrate typically start shopping a week before the two weeks of festivities.
Stocking up for the two weeks was something that the restaurant, District One Kitchen and Bar, did.
At World of Feng Shui on Spring Mountain Road, shoppers can find Chinese decorations, rabbit-themed items, and red envelopes that are used to give children money during the holiday.
Several business owners said they were encouraged by the return of activity to the area. Chinatown’s expansion over the decades created a hub of commercial activity that saw more tourism and locals.
Spring Mountain Road has become a foodie neighborhood where there are basically 150 restaurants in a row like that.
