Auburn Businesses See Dramatic Drop in Sales This Football Season
Two years after winning a National Championship, Auburn University has lost five of its six games this season. But the loses aren't only hurting Tiger Fans' pride, it's hurting businesses at the cash register.
Many business owners in downtown Auburn say they've taken a hit since the Tiger's losing streak. Some are reporting a 40 percent decrease in sales.
But today, silence fills the stores.
Business owners say the one thing saving them: college visits. They say the number of high school students and their families visiting the school hasn't changed.
