Houghton Lake Sees Business Spike For Tip Up Town USA

And with Tip Up Town bringing in more people to Houghton Lake, local businesses are having to work hard to keep up.

Spicer’s Boat City says they have had more than 1 thousand visitors over the weekend.

They called in extra staff to keep up with customers.

Spicer’s has also seen a spike in sales, with people buying snowmobiles and other winter merchandise.

The General Manager says it’s all because of the weather and Tip Up Town.

"The reaction has been good like I said we’ve called in extra help to take care of all the people that have been coming in. It’s been like wow people are here so it’s time to sell some product," said Bill Kerns.

Bill says that they expect to be flooded with customers for the remainder of the festival.
