Nice weather booms business


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Mother nature finally took a break from that wet and rainy weather this past month, and beach business couldn't be better.

"Today, since I have gotten here at 11 o'clock, we have been really, really busy," said employee at Wings near Wrightsville Beach.

Busy is a good thing for beach businesses, especially after a very wet stretch of weather this past month. These shops say the more sunshine, the better the business.

"During the day people are trying to get off the beach as soon as they can if it is raining," said ice cream stand worker Geena Davis. "They are running across the bridge and not here."

"It depends on how hard it is raining," said Henna tattoo artist Jahde Justad, "But yes. Usually the sunnier the better."

Workers hope the trend in nice weather continues to draw people to the beaches and into their stores. They said they can handle a few storms, but want the flooding rains to stay away.
