Warmer weather means better business local ice cream shop

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) With the unseasonably warm weather we've been feeling this week, some people are getting spring fever!

Which means business is good if you make ice cream.

The manager at Blue Cow Ice Cream in Roanoke says they've seen a significant increase in customer traffic.

They're busy scooping favorite flavors, and new seasonal ones like local Girl Scout troop 323 thin mint cookie.

She says this winter has been slow, so the increase in business this week is very welcome.

"You're seeing maybe a handful of people trickling in throughout morning to afternoon, you'd go for quite a while not seeing any friendly faces around," Tresa Walko, Manager at Blue Cow Ice Cream said about the usual winter business.

She says, comparatively, they've had nearly 100 people in and out daily with this nice weather.
