YAKIMA -- Stores are doing what they can to stay afloat and stretch your dollar, too! Inland Lighting on Yakima Avenue is one of several stores who extended their holiday discounts a couple weeks longer than usual. Sales have been down for many businesses, but shopkeepers are staying positive.
Inland Lighting owner Jim Engebretson tells Action News, "I think while it may be a bit slow now, I don't think it's necessarily going to stay that way."
Some businesses are even holding year-round sales on some of their popular items.
