Memorial Day Weekend boosts sales for local businesses

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – Local businesses in places like Rehoboth Beach on Tuesday said they saw a significant boost in sales this Memorial Day Weekend.

According to the Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce the city got about $1.6 million dollars.

The President of the Chamber of Commerce Carol Everhart said about 600,000 visitors made their way to Rehoboth Beach this weekend.

That is good news for local business owners who said great weather played a huge role in their sale increase.

“Usually, we’re all in the same ball game,” said Nick Caggiano, the owner of Nicola Pizza.

“So when everybody is busy we’re all busy, and unfortunately, when it’s slow we’re almost always all slow at the same time, but this weekend I think for everyone it was an astronomical weekend,” said Caggiano.

Business owners said they are looking forward for more people to visit the resort town for the 4th of July.
