Rehoboth Businesses Prepare for End of Summer

Posted:
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. - With the start of Labor Day weekend Rehoboth Beach businesses are reflecting on the busy summer and how they expect a great end to the season.

For many high schoolers, the holiday weekend is the last one of freedom before getting into full study mode. Sophia Kosman and Danielle Markey are best friends who are visiting Rehoboth Beach for Labor Day weekend.

"I'm happy for the weekend, but after the weekend I go right back to school so I'm not really looking forward to that," Kosman said.

And for businesses, like Thrasher's French Fries, after this weekend sales start to gradually slow down.

"Because everyone's going back to school so its been kind of dying off," said Logan Joyce, a summer employee. "But a lot of people come down for one last hurrah."

But they say even though business will slow down, the busy summer makes up for it.

"We had a record summer actually it was our best summer so far by sales," he said. "All three stores combined."

But at a popular arcade on the boardwalk, Labor Day weekend means the end of a crazy summer.

"It does make me sad," Dale Cirillo, a 25 year Rehoboth veteran.  "But then I have something to look forward to."

Cirillo said she does expect the weekend to be a whirlwind.

"Labor day weekend your Fridays and your Saturday and your Sundays will be your best," Cirillo said. "Sunday as the day goes on it goes wooooo."

As the crowds pile up, you can expect this last hurrah to a good one for the businesses in Rehoboth Beach.
