Biz Beat: Rush is on for holiday turkeys

‘Tis the season for turkeys, and one business is continuing its long-running tradition by stacking Thanksgiving turkeys out front in anticipation of the holiday rush.

For people seeking free-range, unfrozen turkeys, Overland Meat Co. placed 220 turkeys in front of the store Nov. 12 and 270 on Nov. 16, which is the last order before Thanksgiving. Owner Brian Coehn said when the order comes in, the turkeys are easier to count when they stack them up outside.

The shop is located at 2227 Lake Tahoe Blvd., Suite C. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information, call (530) 544-3204.

Mommy & Me will begin indoor classes for the coming winter in December, said owner Yolanda Nussdorfer.

Nussdorfer started Mommy & Me in August to provide exercise for parents and entertainment for young kids. The idea came to her when she couldn’t find the time to go to the gym because she couldn’t always find a baby sitter.

The class started as an hourlong cardio and strength class, which used a stroller. To accommodate the changing season, Nussdorfer is moving inside the Tahoe Tot Spot in December. Classes will be held Tuesday and Friday mornings. She also will be at the Kahle Community Center in January, with classes at 10 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.

The snowshoe class is waiting to be announced, pending the snowfall.

Class prices range from $5 to $12 per session. For more information and current classes and locations, check out

Blue Addiction Clothing Company opened Oct. 9 because owner Corinne Silver thought Lake Tahoe needed a clothing store with low prices.

The store sells men’s, women’s, children’s and infants’ clothing, said store manager Julie Backer. The clothing ranges from jeans to children’s snowsuits to outfits women can wear for a night out, she said.

Prices for women’s jeans run from $25 to $33, and men’s pants run from $20 to $26.

Silver and Backer moved from Thousand Oaks because they loved the small-town atmosphere and the weather, Backer said.

The store is located at 1018 Herbert Ave. They are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day but are planning to extend their hours for the holidays. For more information, call (530) 541-1184.
