Treacherous road conditions hurt local business

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL)- While snow can be fun, it can also be difficult to handle … especially commerce, which tends to lag during times of inclement

News channel 11 spoke with Marco’s Pizza in Johnson City on Saturday. Marco’s said, normally, all the snow would drum up more business but with the treacherous road conditions … delivering isn’t a very viable option.

As fewer people getting out to brace the cold, it can be especially hard on businesses.

Marco’s General Manager, Jason Jackson, said, “If it’s just snow and the roads aren’t too bad … people don’t want to get out and I can deliver a lot more, but with it being like this … it makes it difficult to get out there and deliver but I try my best.”

Jackson said another reason for business being slow could be the fact that many people don’t know which businesses are open on difficult days like the snow covered ones we’ve been seeing.
