“So far, so good. The weather definitely helps with that because we’ve had nice weather so far. All the weekends have been nice, which is definitely a plus for us in our business,” says Charlie Bunger of Bunger Surf & Sports in Babylon. “Sunny weather means if you want to go to the beach and they want to go to the beach, they usually need to stop in here to gear themselves up for it with all the stuff that we sell.”

The store carries essential beach supplies such as sunglasses, flip flops, and surfboards. They’re selling like hotcakes.

Bungers credits an improving economy and sunshine with all of this summer success.

On a scale of 1 to 10, he says, “I’d give it an 8, I guess, so far.”
