The article focuses on the advertising for the 2009 Winter Las Vegas Market that was held on February 9-13, 2009 in Nevada. The event was aimed at attracting people who are value conscious through the use of a Web site promo. But Internet users who typed the abbreviated address of the site will find a domain name for sale by Pacific Online Services. There is no news if lawyers for the furniture mart will take legal action concerning the matter.
