Celebration breeds business

Tejon is shutdown this evening as folks come out to bring in the 2014 Olympic Games. But it's local businesses that may be the most excited.

"It goes from seeing, 50 maybe 100 people if we're lucky, to a couple hundred," said PB & Jellies Manager, Chris Myers.

PB & Jellies sits right on the Tejon strip and they say a big turnout means big business. 

"These events are really big for us, mainly because of the traffic we see on Tejon street. You know we're trying to sell hot coco's tonight, but when it's all said and done we really just want the exposure," said Myers.

But not every shop is that excited about the downtown celebration.

"Because parking can be an issue down here. People tend to, if they can't find a parking space, just move on and don't stop. I'm just concerned that they won't stay and actually shop," said Terra Verde General Manager, Amy Christensen.

The celebration is scheduled to go until 10:00 PM this evening and we're hoping you'll be out enjoying the festivities.
