Memorial Day Travelers Mean Big Business For Route 50 Storeowners

Posted:
 CAMBRIDGE, Md.- As Memorial Day traffic began to build, WBOC joined the flow of traffic, to see what businesses were doing to reel in the customers.  Our first stop could be found by the smell alone, in case the sign didn't catch your attention.  The Linkwood Fire Company has once again opened up the barbeque pit to hungry travelers like the Horkys from the western shore.

"It's close by, we like Ocean City, we like the beach and the chicken.  We've been having Linkwood-Salem's barbeque chicken for years.  We even check the calender to see which holidays," said the Horkys.

"We try to hit on every holiday weekend Friday and Saturday.  Hopefully we sell out Friday so we can have the weekend off!" said one of the cooks, Justin Koshar.

"We have different sauces," said another cook, Randy Lewis.  "We have a vinegar based sauce, with eggs, poultry season, and stuff like that.  We boil it, and then we boil it before it comes out here, and then be just brown it out here."

Just down the highway at The Farmer's Daughter, they say signs are the best way to get customers.

"The beach people, we're hoping to get them on the way down to the beach so they can enjoy eastern shore produce while they're at the beach," said Doris Thomas.

The Farmer's Daughter and Linkwood Fire Company are just two of many businesses looking to grab the attention of people going east.

But come Saturday and later in the weekend, westbound businesses like the Hot Spot are ready for their seasonal customers.

"There are certain people that I know that we'll see this weekend, and certain people that we're looking forward to seeing, we haven't seen them all year," said owner Eric Ploeg.

With a beautiful weekend on tap, there isn't much to keep the customers away.
