WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) -- Even stores that don't sell Packer gear got in on Green Bay frenzy on Tuesday. 

Workers at Home Furniture in Wisconsin Rapids took a break to check out the Return to Titletown special on Newsline 9 on their big screen projector. They said if people came to find some fine home furnishings, they might get sidelined until the special was over.

"Usually in a work day, you work all the time," said owner Ed Lotzer. "Now we can sit down and enjoy something we might not see for a long time. But hopefully next year we'll be back there again."

Workers at the store said they offered customers cookies and coffee and invited them to watch the special with them and then worried about what they wanted to purchase afterwards.
