SHADY COVE, Ore. — There are still many places and ways to enjoy the three day weekend and warm weather, but some raft rental stores say they expect a lull this weekend. Owners of raft and paddleboard rental shops in shady cove say the big wave of customers has already passed. They say that’s not unusual.
Devon Stephenson with Rapid Pleasure Rentals in Shady Cove says, “It’s actually lower than like a July crowd because a lot of people have already done their traveling and having fun, and they’re gearing up for school, or they’ve spent their money or whatever, so it tends to not be as busy as what most people would think.”
The raft rental store owners say they’ve had steady business all summer long. They say the extra days of hot weather gave them an extra boost.
