Stores getting busy for Memorial Day

WESTON (WAOW) -- Memorial Day weekend means more customers for businesses.

Many families in central Wisconsin will get together for barbecues this weekend or spend time sprucing up their yards.

Managers at Ace Hardware in Weston say they've needed all hands on deck to help with the rush of customers shopping for supplies.

They say grills and propane tanks are especially hot items on this Memorial Day weekend.

"Everybody's anxious to get out of the house," said Larry Christensen, the manager at Ace Hardware. "The weather's finally broke, beautiful weekend, so people are ready to grill and enjoy outdoor activities."

Christensen says he expects the store to be busier this weekend than they were last Memorial Day.
