Hudson Falls business welcomes boost snowfall brings

The Capital Region saw snow this week, which meant people headed out to buy snowblowers and other snow removal equipment.

Tim Havens Sr. owns Falls Farm and Garden Equipment Co. in Hudson Falls. His business sells snowblowers and tractors with snow removal equipment.

Because the winter has been pretty mild, their sales were slow during the beginning of the winter.

However, Havens says this past week, business started to pick up. He estimates they’ve had 75 to 80 customers in the store. He says they have also seen a rise in people coming in to pick up parts and for repairs.

Havens adds the rain and snow mix has caused traction issues for people when they are driving, which has brought in customers.

Havens is optimistic. While this winter has been mild so far, he believes we will see more snow in February and March.
