Extreme Dip In Temps Means A Bit Of A Dip For Local Businesses

Posted: Updated:

This bitter-cold weather is having a big impact on many local businesses.
That's because it's keeping their customers, at home.

The dip in temperatures have meant a dip in sales for many local businesses.

Chris Scott, of Scott Enterprises, says their businesses including their restaurants and Splash Lagoon, are seeing an impact from the cold temps.

And believe it or not, the extremely cold temps are causing a bit of a dip at Peek'N Peak as well,
"It's been a little bit slower at the Peek because when it's too cold people tend to not want to ski. But fortunately this weekend the temperatures look like they're getting back to normal around 25 and 30 degrees," said Scott.

And at John V. Schultz, they say there aren't as many shoppers willing to bundle up, hop in the car and shop for furniture.

So this winter, especially during the cold days, they've seen a slip in sales.

"What happens when you get so many cold days and some unplanned snow days is that people stay in and it affects our business a little bit, where we build up some excess inventory and we have to get rid of that now. So we're going to have even better promotions," said Matt Schultz.
