Super Bowl Boosts Business

More Video...

The Super Bowl has become an unofficial holiday for many Americans, and along with holidays often comes more sales.

That's the case for television sales. Furniture and Appliance Mart Entertainment Specialist, Jason Gober said this is actually the best time to buy a TV.

"Now is the deal time because it's a lot of clearance models, a lot of displays, a lot of really nice high-end TVs that just got marked down just because it's the end of the model year," he said.

There are a lot of different models out there. Gober said many people start with the size when deciding to purchase.

"Anytime someone wants a TV around Super Bowl time, they're always buying big," he said. "Everyone is buying on size now because all of the prices are so low."

Plasmas and LEDs are the main types of TVs out there. Gober said plasmas are good for watching sports, movies, and give off great natural color, but only work well in dark rooms. LEDs are more versatile and work well in bright rooms, but do not follow motion as well as the plasmas.

The super bowl experience is not just about watching the game, however. The food is a major part of the party. Places like Toppers Pizza and other delivery restaurants have also seen a super bowl boost.

"Normal business days we always have our timed orders, but on Super Bowl Sunday we have timed orders calling throughout the day all the way up to the game and especially at half time," said Toppers Pizza Assistant Manager, Steven Repinski.

Many places also offer Super Bowl specials. At Toppers, you can get an extra large, three topping pizza, a triple order of Toppers sticks and a pound of wings, all for $30.
