BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) - For those who don't get to take a lunch break every day, you may feel like you're missing out on some of those popular spots as well as other businesses that aren't open after dark.
On Tuesday night, the residents of Benton with 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs got a unique chance to visit local shops that they might normally miss.
"We are thrilled to death to do it. I love the concept. It's great for downtown," said Robin Bray of Gingles Department Store. Benton business owners told THV11 that they couldn't believe the crowds in their shops Tuesday for the Historic Downtown Benton Christmas Open House. "We were hoping for a great turn out, so far it has exceeded our expectations," added Bray.
