Lack of snow leaves retailers in the cold

The lack of snow does not mean businesses in Door and Kewaunee counties are not feeling its impact. From tire dealers to hardware stores, businesses are finding their merchandise made for heavy snowfall beginning to collect dust. Jim Lemens from Lemens Hardware in Luxemburg says snowblower sales and repairs dropped off significantly in December and January as snowfall totals fell 10 inches off the average pace according to the state’s climatology office.

Without a major snowfall in the forecast in the near future, Lemens believes it could be good news for consumers as retailers try to move inventory to make way for lawnmowers in the spring and newer snowblower models in the fall.
