The store’s general manager said they always see high propane sales this time of year.

“Always, usually this week and the weeks leading up to Memorial Day, the week after Memorial Day that is when everyone is working on their grills for the weekend, everyone wants to grill out because it’s nice out,” said Adam Nowosielski, general manager at Kraus Department Store.

Nowosielski added they also sold a lot of grills and American flags.
