Homecoming helps downtown business

KPAX TV photo(MISSOULA)- Downtown Missoula businesses, and especially those along the "Hip Strip" on Higgins, say Saturday's University of Montana Homecoming can give their businesses a big shot in the arm.

Thousands of people flocked to the downtown area this weekend for the parade. Plus the other events generate good foot traffic, especially to local restaurants, throughout a period of several days. 

KPAX TV reports Wordon's Market was one of those reaping the benefit of all that Grizzly pride, opening at 7:30 Saturday morning for coffee drinkers, and even selling its first keg at 8 a.m. Manager Allan Neilsen said business had been "great".
