Downtown Businesses Get Boost

For the first time, many downtown Coeur d'Alene businesses saw people come out specifically to shop local during Small Business Saturday. It gave them a boost in sales they hope will carry them through the rest of the holiday season. Each piece of chocolate is a labor of love handcrafted by Tim Yeager's family at Coeur d'Alene Chocolates. "Every time somebody tries one just to see that look of delight and amazement on their face," Yeager said. This is the sweet part of business, but chocolate isn't the only thing Yeager is trying to fill. "The biggest challenge of course is trying to keep the current customer base trying to increase that," he said/Anusha Roy, KXLY. More here.

Question: What did you buy the last time you shopped in downtown Coeur d'Alene?
