Wind chill advisories are in effect Monday for most of Minnesota and western Wisconsin until 10 a.m. A few counties in extreme northern Minnesota are even seeing wind chill warnings, with wind chills expected to reach nearly 45 degrees below zero.
Store owners at the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes are hoping for a warmer weekend. Unlike traditional malls, where it’s always 70 degrees, customers at these shops occasionally have to venture outside, going door to door. Liz Schiller is the owner of Juniper, a small boutique that features local designers and artists. “We do see a decrease in business when the weather is frigid like today,” Schiller said. When the temperature drops, so do the prices at a lot of Arbor Lakes’ stores. Discounts and incentives are offered to those willing to spend a little time outside.
