Businesses Looking for Competitive Edge in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- More small businesses are starting to see a bounce back in the economy and some are adopting new strategies to draw in more customers and be competitive.

At the Desert Food Mart at Charleston and Jones Boulevard, you can fill up your gas tank, gamble, buy food or drink, and even get your letters or packages mailed without the long lines found at the post office.

"They say it's at least 200 to 300 extra people that will walk into the store because of the mailing," said Iqbal Hussein, owner of the Desert Food Mart.

This new partnership with the U.S. Postal Service will help Hussein's business which took a dive during the downturn.

"We felt it, big time. We lost a lot of customers from the neighborhood, and a lot of them moved out, and now because of this, we're going to see a lot of traffic coming back in," he said.
