People are hungry...hungry for grills, and of course, the stuff you cook on them.
"We've definitely seen an increase in grill sales this year," explains Kim Pefley, an ACE Hardware manager in South Bend.
"It's been one of those years where we're kept in the house for so long that now you just want to get out and get grilling," Pefley says.
Pefley says new models available offer more options, look sleeker, and are more affordable.
"Bring the price down so it's easier for the consumer to purchase a grill that's in the means that they want," says Pefley
"The pricing of grills has become a lot more competitive. You're getting a lot more grill, a lot more grill value, than you've ever gotten before," says Matt Moore, the manager from another hardware store in Mishawaka.
"Between $500-$700 dollars you're getting one heck of a grill."
Apparently, grill consumers agree.
