WICHITA, Kan. -- The snow and cold temperatures this week have frozen out customers for some local businesses.
There are a lot of empty tables at Ruben's Mexican Grill on Douglas in the Delano area. Owner Ruben Acosta says he had to close at 3:30 pm on Tuesday when normal closing time is 9 pm. "And this hurt", said Acosta. "It hurt for the business. Hurt for the employees - it hurt for everybody."
Across the street at the Bicycle X-Change owner Michael Scanga says he too had to close early. But while open he did make some sales. "Foot traffic down a little bit", said Scanga. "But everybody that came in was grooming up for the weather and the snow."
Scanga says he sold some fat tire bikes that can get around even in the snow.
All the businesses owners in Delano KAKE News spoke with said they hope that business will pick up with warmer temperatures.
