Craigslist Site in Yakima Catching On

YAKIMA, Wa -  Many people in Yakima are starting to use the website Craigslist rather than traditional classified ads in newspapers.

Craigslist started a Yakima site six months ago.  People can go online to find just about anything, from jobs and housing, to a date.

The site is free to anyone except businesses in several major cities nationwide.

Craigslist doesn't advertise, but people here are starting to catch on.

Penny Press Publications says it relies on classified ads to help bankroll its three weekly publications in Yakima.  They tell KNDO that Craigslist is a concern, but at this point can't measure the impact its having.
