Air Conditioners Flying Off the Shelves
7/19/2013 (Updated 10:52:31 PM)This week, Olum's in Vestal has seen a sharp increase in air conditioner sales due to the high temperatures.
Appliances and Electronics General Manager Kevin Lillie said sales have been off the charts.
Olum's has sold about 50 to 75 air conditioning units a day this week.
Lillie said this increase in sales comes at no surprise, though.
"Where you start to see the bulk of your sales is when people can't sleep at night, the next day they are literally lined up out front, trying to get air right away," said Lillie.
Lillie said people have been coming in to buy new, more energy efficient air conditioners to replaced older ones.
