S’no Problem, Shoppers Say
By Matt Rivers
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (CBS) — With all of the area preparing and digging out from the storms this winter, the weather has taken its toll on many.
At the King of Prussia mall, however, many people have not let the snow stop them from shopping. The mall was crowded on Saturday as people left their homes, trying to get back to normal.
For the past week, the area has been hit with several snow storms, ice, and power outages. Shopper Michelle Cohen says this is an opportunity to get out.
“We’re shopping because this is a nasty day, it’s still raining and snowing, and we’re over this weather,” she said.
“We’re going crazy, there’s nothing to do,” added Steve Cohen. “We can’t make it to Florida, so we come to the mall.”
“It’s getting a little nuts,” said Jamie McGinley, standing outside the mall. She came out to the mall, “just to do anything. Anything different than shoveling, and snow.”
Whatever the reason for getting out to the mall, shoppers were excited about the possibility for 50 degree weather at the end of the week, and the chance to put the snow behind them.
