There is a new confidence for small business. Areas all over the Las Vegas valley are seeing shops and restaurants opening.

The newly remodeled Village Square at Ft. Apache Road and Sahara Avenue is adding seven new businesses.

One of them is Pisces Reef, Fish Emporium which features fresh and salt water fish along with all the accessories for fish tanks.

"I saw incremental improvements in the economy. Little ma and pa shops opening up," owner Belinda Lavezzi said.

For her, one of the striking positives was people's willingness to spend.

"People like these type of things. As you have more disposable income, you look to find what makes you happy," Lavezzi said.

She is not the only small-business owner noticing it. Thirteen new businesses have popped up in the last 18 months at Village Square alone.

Even with all the growth, Lavezzi did not take any chances and did some research before she invested.

Macy's Closing Bloomingdale's at Fashion Show

A retail giant is pulling one of its stores from the Fashion Show Mall on the Las Vegas Strip.

Macy's announced Thursday that it is closing six stores around the country including the Bloomingdale's Home Store at the Fashion Show Mall.

The clearance sale for the store starts Sunday and is expected to last several weeks. The retailer is closing the store because of poor sales performance.

The store opened in 2002 and employs 35 associates. The company says it will offer employees positions in nearby stores.

Despite the closing of Bloomingdales, Macy's is expanding its presence at Fashion Show with the addition of the Macy's Men's Store. The 105,000-square-foot store will open later this spring. The company is also remodeling its main store at the mall.

A new Macy's store will be built at the Shops in Summerlin, which is expected to be finished in the fall of next  year. The store is expected to be 180,000 square feet and employee 160 associates.
