"Sidewalk sale" increasing profits

PAXTON -- Small businesses are doubling their sales and shop owners say it's thanks to a new selling technique. Robin McNish owns an antique shop. She started putting stuff on the sidewalk and it attracted business.

Other store owners around town are doing it too. McNish says the street isn't very busy and a lot of customers thought they were closed. But antiques on the sidewalk catch their eye.

A committee worried it could clutter walkways, so city leaders are putting together rules about how close items can be to the street.
