Air conditioning units, fans selling fast at local stores

Posted: Updated:

With these extreme temperatures most of us have our air conditioners and fans running non-stop.

And if you don't have those items many people are now heading to their local stores to pick one up.

Ace Hardware in Sioux Falls is seeing those items go fast. Workers say people are buying fans and air conditioning units. After lunch time is when business picks up. Workers are also selling another popular item when it gets hot like this.

"We have a lot of people coming in getting furnace filters for their central air conditioning and people who have air conditioning don't want any problems with their air conditioning," Jim Rogers said.

Other hot items flying off the shelves: sprinklers and garden hoses. Workers say a lot of families are trying to keep their kids cool if they're outside.

Items not selling right now because of the heat: grass seed, firewood and exterior paint.
