Record snowfall has snow blowers flying off the shelves
With the crazy amounts of snow we've seen this month, people have been reaching for their shovels and snow blowers. Local business that stock snow blowers, like Grebes in Wausau, cannot stock the showroom floor fast enough.
"We haven't been able to get stuff fast enough, it's been a unique year. When we have product in stock and it's snowing, people will come in. They say I'll take that one, that looks right, that's the perfect one for me. The last two to three weeks have been us selling product without them seeing it," Grebe’s owner Tim Grebe said.
Products that do make it to the store, are then sold in record time.
“We actually had two of the same machines left so I wheeled one on the floor just to see how long it would last. We were going to take bets and see how long, and it was literally 10 minutes and the machine was gone," Grebe added.
Even though it means long hours, the store managers are thankful for the extra business.
"It's been a phenomenal, a record breaking year for snow blowers," Grebe explained.
