Summertime sales are suffering in the Valley and one local fabric store owner says he hasn't seen any changes since the national recession ended.

While big retail stores, throughout the nation report seeing improvements, that's apparently not the case locally, "So you see a little bit more people in the mall, La Plaza Mall, you see a little more people in the high end coming even in the beach, South Padre Island."

Experts say a a recession is defined by three consecutive quarters of negative economic growth.
