Flagstaff residents say lack of snow has slowed business

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF - Business owners from hospitality to retail say the lack of winter snowfall seems to have slowed business in a northern Arizona city dependent on tourism.
    
The Arizona Daily Sun reports that Flagstaff hotel owners are reporting lower numbers of visitors during this holiday season - a time when hotel demand is typically high.
    
Peace Surplus employees say winter-oriented items are selling OK, but the store has held sales that it normally doesn't hold in order to keep the items moving off the shelves.
    
Restaurant and bar owners say business has been consistent but slower than normal.
    
Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau spokeswoman Meg Roederer says it's too soon to report how sales tax figures, lodging occupancy and hotel room rates have changed in December, but this information is being gathered.
