Christmas Snow? Shop Says Not Many Are Buying Winter Items

Midtown Hardware workers said fall, lawn merchandise is out-selling winter items, even though there is a chance of snow Christmas Day.

"It's been so warm," said employee Mike Johnson. "I mean, we've probably sold less this year than we ever have."

Johnson said he only sold one shovel Saturday. However, he recommends shoppers in the area buy shovels, ice melts, window scrapers, and even sleds before Christmas Day.

"We'll be just fine," said one shopper. "I think anybody who lives in Oklahoma, you know, they're pretty prepared for anything."

Midtown Hardware is open 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Christmas Eve but is closed on Christmas.
