From late Thursday to early Friday, shopping traffic slowed at stores along Route 30 in Greensburg.
But one market was booming in the early-morning lull: restaurants. The Dunkin' Donuts had a line at the cash register. The McDonald's was so busy the workers forgot to switch the signs over to the breakfast menu in the Drive-Thru (it was hurriedly fixed as two employees ran out).
And the new IHOP, located next to the Barnes and Noble in Hempfield, had the most number of cars filling its parking lot. So many, in fact, that if you didn't know any better, you'd think it was 6 a.m. when it was still only a little after 4.
