Auto Parts Stores Seeing Steady Traffic Due to Cold Weather

Snow and ice not only make it hard for you to drive but also hard for your car to operate.

Auto part stores are seeing an increase in business due to the snow and ice.

O’Reilly Auto Parts on Evansville’s north side says they are seeing at least 15 customers a day coming in a needing a new battery.

But store employee Andrea Fahrlender says being ready for winter weather goes beyond starting your car.

“The snow and ice is what’s killing the wiper blades, especially. A lot of people are realizing that whenever the salt from the roads hits their windshield, they need to use their wipers a lot more and they realize, ‘Man these things have been bad for awhile’ and they go ahead and get them changed,” said Andrea Fahrlender .

Fahrlender also says the best advice she can give any customer is have your battery checked and wipers changed before snow and ice arrive.
