Yuma, AZ- A popular night club in Downtown Yuma that has been vacant for almost a year, is now under new owner ship.

Lutes says it's not just the night life that's going to benefit. He says most businesses in the area will benefit too.

The Kress was a popular night club that shut its doors almost a year ago after the owner Frank Ruiz filed for bankruptcy.

Some businesses along Main Street say they also felt a financial hit when the Kress closed down.

"When the top of the Kress was open before it benefited us so we just think the more people that come down here the better it is," said Mary Earle the owner of the Main Squeeze.

An employee at Underhill Transfer Company says they plan to operate the building as it had been seen before.
