Here's a list of promotions that some of the businesses in Southampton are running through the holidays:
- Make sure that chimney is clean for Santa's descent: Chim Chimney is offering ample discounts through the holiday season. The company is offering free estimates, which include a 21 point inspection, and cleaning service, which is normally $120, will be $100 for the holidays. If you are a policeman, firefighter, senior citizen or volunteer, the company will knock an additional $10 off of the price.

- Know a pinball wizard? Go old skool and give the gift of a real video game with TNT Amusements. Placing an order by Dec. 1 guarantees delivery by Christmas. Even better - the retailer's return policy. Owner Todd Tuckey stands by his 30-day trial, and even adds some extra days to the end of the offer for holiday shoppers, extending the deadline for exchange until the end of January. "Any reason they want, they can switch it," said Tuckey. "That's something you won't find on eBay."
