Area grocery stores, sports bars, and retail businesses expect a green and gold bump this weekend. The Green Bay Packers are making another Super Bowl run this January with a divisional playoff game in Arlington, Texas Sunday afternoon. Jon Calhoun, the manager of Econofoods in Sturgeon Bay, says this weekend will be like an additional holiday in-store.
Calhoun says the two busiest areas in the store are typically the wine & spirits department and the deli on playoff weekends. The Packers hosted a game last week in Green Bay which reportedly impacted the community economy over $13 million dollars.
