Tourists Shop Small Businesses

BILLINGS -

Christmas often brings many family members into town and into small businesses.

Neecee's owner, Denice Johnson, says many of her customers bring their relatives into the store. She says she sees customers from Wyoming who visit Downtown Billings to shop and eat too. Retailers say this year was a little different, because of the shorter holiday shopping season and bad weather.

"That was a little different this season, but I think we acclimated to that. And of course this weather now is awesome, and there's a lot of people in the street, so that's very good news," Johnson said.

Retailers say their next big sale is right before New Year's.
