Cold Weather Gives Some Businesses Boost

Posted: Updated:

While the cold has kept people at home and away from some businesses, other businesses are enjoying a boost.

McFly's Outdoors in Lewis County says since the frigid temperatures settled in, more people are coming in to buy gear to stay warm.

But instead of winter coats, staff said it's a different item they're seeing go out the door.

"A lot of the base layers, like UnderArmour, things of that nature. A lot of guys that come to work or work in the oilfields and stuff like that, they really need the base layer to keep them warm outside," said McFly's employee Tyler Williams.

Like many other businesses lately, McFly's has closed early on certain days to get workers home safely.
