BELLEVUE- (KPTM)- The bitter cold temperatures are the cause for some retail stores to take a hit.
But not this MegaSaver in Bellevue.
"We've seen a boom in business because of our drive through," said Maribel Gutierrez, store manager.
"Usually people have a large order and they rumble through it and tell you what you want. You just have to remember it," said Gutierrez.
Then it's off to the coffee area, the refrigerators, snack shack and the cigarette counter to fill most orders.
"It is helping bring a lot of customers to the store because people are cold and they don't want to get out of their cars to get these items. Families with bundled up kids in the back seat are our biggest customers. They just don't want to get the kids out of the care to come in for a few items. The drive thru is very convenient for them," said Gutierrez.
People are buying milk and snacks but they can't buy alcoholic beverages from the drive thru. Customers have to come in for them.
"We have seen a spike the past few weeks at all of our stores that have a drive through. In the metro we have 18 stores and 12 of them have the drive thru service," said Gutierrez.
