Small amount of rain increases business at local car wash

NewsChannel 10

Amarillo, TX - Even though there wasn't a lot of rain in the Amarillo area Sunday night, it was still enough to increase sales for some local businesses.

Within just twenty minutes of being at the Quick Quack Car Wash on Georgia in Amarillo, Monday afternoon, we saw about seventy vehicles pull in to get washed.

We spoke with Quick Quack and they say they usually experience a boost in sales after any sort of rainfall.

The small amount of rain that fell in parts of the area Sunday, mixed with the blowing dirt, means their sales for the day will likely double.

"It always stays busy and it's good for us, you know, it keeps us busy and keeps our company going. We usually run about 300 cars a shift, so we will probably see up to at least 500 during today, so around there," said David Guerrero, with Quick Quack.
