Will bad weather keep last minute Christmas shoppers away?
With a possibility of snow in the forecast for the weekend, a local retailer says he still expects customers to be swinging through the doors for some last minute Christmas shopping.
While there's no snow on the ground yet, the owner of Bridge City T.V. and Appliance in Ottumwa says on the first snowfall this season, business was booming.
â??Oh we did great,â?? Chris McKeag, owner said. â??It's kind of weird, when the weather is still where you can get around, everybody wants it to be delivered.
McKeag says as long as people can get out of their house, they will shopping in his store. You can also see the Christmas lights and hear the holiday music playing vibrantly outside Bridge City.
