Convenience stores busy Christmas day

December 25, 2006

Albany -- While many area stores and businesses are closed for the holiday, firefighters, police officers, EMT, and convenience stores clerks are among the people working this Christmas.

Woodall's on Westover Road was open and business was steady. Workers say several people have been coming in to buy last minute snacks or drinks, and many travelers are stopping by to fill up. They say it's not so bad working on the holiday.

"Tonight's been one of them easy breeze getting ready for the kids to be able to have fun and get out and play and stuff. But it's been pretty good. I'd rather be at home with them, but you know business is business, work is work. We've enjoyed seeing the people coming in and things," said Woodall's Clerk Debra Edwards.

Those who did have to work today say it's just a part of the job, but they are looking forward to clocking out.
