Stores Expecting Brisk Fan, AC Sales


The weekend's hot weather made for good business in local hardware stores, where fans and air conditioners have been popular items.

Stores say they're bracing for more sales this week, as temperatures continue to heat up.

"If the weather persists, we'll probably order more fans and have a bigger selection for people to choose from," said Kris Butler of Stratton Hardware in Watertown, "because they're going to become popular here."

"We have fans and air conditioners and if we don't have them in stock, we can get them from between two to three business days for you," Christina Lawrence of Noble Ace Hardware in Watertown said.

Most fans cost about $20 or more.
