(WICHITA, Kan.) — There are some times of the year when a butcher's business booms, and sometimes when it slows.
"It kind of slows off when it gets real hot out," says Danny Collins, owner of The Butcher's Block in Wichita. "People don't want to stand in front of a fire all day."
He estimates his business drops off by about 10 percent in the summer because people don't want to barbecue.
"People just prefer to cook inside."
During the summer months, the grill isn't the only thing people neglect. People often times neglect their gardens and lawns.
"Once it's really hot, you have a lot of people that prefer to stay inside," says Cathy Brady, manager of Brady Nursery in Wichita. "But those tried and true gardeners are still going to go out and take care of things."Triple digits hurting business
