ALBANY, GA (WALB) - ASU homecoming not only brought in thousands of people this weekend. It also pulled in a lot of business for local retailers and restaurants.
The shift manager at Maryland Fried Chicken says they stocked up on food before the big crowds came into town.
She's glad they did because a steady flow of visitors spiked sales this weekend. She's worked the past five years and says this year's homecoming had a great turnout.
"It was marvelous this weekend," said Shift Manager, Tonja Powell. "Parking lots were full. We did really good."
The Visitor's Bureau says ASU's homecoming is expected to have a 3.5 to $4 million dollar impact on the community.
