Tourist influx boosts sales
FRASER Coast businesses have been recording steady sales throughout the school holidays, as visitors buy in to the region's typically warm weather.
Summer clothing, swimwear and souvenirs have been snapped up by keen shoppers according to Hervey Bay businesses, with customers making the most of the beachside stores while on holidays.
Banana Bender Beach store-owner Gay Ignatenko said sales were up on last year's school holidays.
"It's been quite good lately, a lot of people are buying swimmers and summer lines," Ms Ignatenko said.
"But the cold weather on Sunday and Monday did keep a lot of visitors away earlier this week."
