No Longer Endless, Just Repetitive

You know how some stores seem to always be "Going Out of Business?" The State Legislature out in Oregon has noticed, and they've come up with a law to deal with those never-ending business endings, according to a story in The Oregonian.
The measure would require merchants to submit a notice of intent to conduct such a sale with the Secretary of State's office. The notice, including the beginning and ending dates of the sale, would have to be displayed in a prominent place at the sale location.
That way, the endless "going out of business" sales have to have ends.

But they apparently can re-start their endings:
Going out of business sales could last no more than 90 days and merchants would be limited to one such sale a year under the bill.
Yup. You can only go out of business once a year in Oregon.
