With the holidays fast approaching, it's not uncommon to see unlicensed, fly-by-night businesses pop up in an attempt to get you to part with your cash.
The city of Henderson is actively cracking down on them, patrolling strip malls, shopping malls and parking lots in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
"During this upcoming shopping season, it is especially important that we watch for unlicensed businesses," said Mayor Andy Hafen. "We want our residents to feel safe and secure while preparing for the holidays and enjoying all the events and festivities."
Henderson Business License officers will be looking for unlicensed business, set up to make a quick holiday buck. Fraudulent businesses are common in parking lots and around busy shopping areas.
You may also see an increase in door-to-door solicitation around the holidays.
Anyone conducting business in the city of Henderson must obtain a business license. To see a list of valid businesses within Henderson, click here.
