Winter Weather Money Makers
The snowstorm wasn't all negative for the area economy. Some businesses saw big booms in revenue. Several eateries in the area shut down early and sent employees home. Those fast food and other eateries that stayed open had long drive thru lines and several people waiting to sit down for a meal. They say this made it worthwhile to stay open. Another revenue generator was hotels. Area hotels were packed with travelers who couldn't reach their destination due to the weather. Some areas of the region even had people on waiting lists for hotel rooms. Who else made a profit from the bad weather? Home improvement stores selling generators and heaters to those afraid of losing electricity. One of the largest money makers during snow was the grocery store with hoards of shoppers scooping up the bread and milk from the shelves. (CC)
