A furniture store is facing a $30,000 fine from New York State. Viking International in Victor is accused of deceiving customers into thinking it was going out of business.

Our news partners at the Messenger Post say an investigation by the state Attorney General found that Viking promoted a "going out of business sale" for longer than 60 days. That's the limit set by the state.

We are told Viking ran that sale for close to eight weeks even though it said it was only running for five.

The store has agreed to stop those practices and pay the $30,000 to the state.
