Yakima fishing supply store will close after nearly three decades
YAKIMA, Wash. -- It is the end of an era for a sporting goods store that served the Yakima Valley for 30 years. Fairbanks Outfitters will close by the end of June.

The owner says Internet sales and a down economy is forcing him to close. The business specializes in fishing gear. Gary Fairbanks tells KIMA his customers are sad to see him go.

"I've actually had two customers come in and cry because I was
going out of business. So, it's been a good long run but it's time
to do something else," Gary said.

Gary says all items are on clearance until the store closes.
