LONG BEACH - Long Beach businesses welcomed Memorial Day revelers today as the city continued to repair damage done by Superstorm Sandy.
Many store owners reported a spike in customers today. Guilleimo Arias, of Joe's Pizza, says business is up 40 percent in the last few days, and he expects the summer to be a profitable one.
Still, roughly 30 percent of Long Beach businesses remain closed following the storm, including popular locale Paninis and Bikinis. Its owners say they hope to reopen in a few weeks.
