LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — In today's Financial Focus, we have a check of the stock market and the stocks with ties to Las Vegas.

Smaller toy stores worry this holiday season could be their last.

Owners say they find it more difficult to compete with Amazon and big-box stores such as Walmart and Target.

They say the pandemic made things worse because the size of their stores makes it difficult to follow social distancing guidelines.

The pandemic also made it difficult to refresh inventory because warehouses they use are operating with reduced staff.

A survey of independent toy stores and gift boutique owners found half worry they will not make it through this year.
