How was business at SPI?
Palm trees and sun, blue water and beach goers is a normal sight during summer vacation on South Padre Island, but with the vacation season coming to an end, and the hard economic times, how was business on the island?
"I think business on the island has been good", says Bob Pinkerton, Mayor of South Padre Island,"the major changes I think have been shorter stays of people instead of weekly."
Sarah Goodfellow from the Palm On The Beach Resort says this season, business was good, "we did more in sales with the cafe and the hotel than we did last year, so we've been really fortunate, we've been booked solid throughout the summer and it has been good for us, business is good".
