Super Bowl spikes TV sales

Posted: Updated:

The upcoming Super Bowl has one eastern Iowa television store saying it's seen an increase in television sales. Managers at Great Sounds Audio/Video in Dubuque say sales of televisions have increased this past week, despite the weather which might drive some to stay home.

Brian Hauber is a manager at Great Sounds Audio/Video in Dubuque.

"I don't think one to two inches (of snow) is going to keep people away from shopping for something that they need Sunday," Hauber said Saturday morning.

Managers at the store say they'll probably match the amount of TVs sold last year during Super Bowl week. They said they also believe additional advancements in TV technology continue to drive sales.
