Roanoke shops stock up for NYE sales

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) It's almost time to pop champagne corks for a new year, and Roanoke shops are stocking up for the holiday revellers.

At Roanoke's Wine Gourmet, they're getting ready for a surge of shoppers expected on Friday.

The shop gets deliveries on Friday morning, and it'll be a quick turnaround for the New Year's Eve shoppers.

"Friday is when most of our deliveries roll in on a normal basis anyway," owner Brian Powell said. "So we'll be fully ready to get all that stuff in and back out on the shelves for our customers who are coming in to prepare for the weekend."

This is their busiest time of the year, and they get a lot of business from people who throw house parties on the 31st.
