After Deadmau5 block party, Las Vegas businesses express their frustrations

On last Thursday, a free block party was held in Las Vegas, headlined by Deadmau5 and hosted by Clark County. The event was meant to be an opportunity for businesses in commercial centers near Sahara and Maryland to attract more customers. Unfortunately, not all businesses were pleased with the turnout. Shuwa Leitart, owner of AvonPop Bookstore, had originally been under the impression that the event would be a family parade and car show to support local businesses, but he soon discovered that this was not the case.

Leitart explained that businesses in the area were not informed of the change until just days before the event. As a result, many had already stocked up on additional merchandise and food for the supposed parade and car show. To make matters worse, event organizers had erected fences and toilets near the entrances of some stores, making it difficult for potential customers to access them.

Leitart expressed his frustration at the situation, stating that the party was clearly meant for adults who were not interested in shopping late at night. After the event, these partygoers were more likely to go to the bar next door than buy books or presents from nearby businesses. Debris from the fences and trash were also left behind, further causing issues for some businesses.

The day after the concert, General Secretary Chick Segelblom apologized to some of the affected companies. However, some were not satisfied with the explanation given. Copyright for this content is held by KVVU.
