Power outage means loss of business for some owners
NORWOOD, Ohio (Paula Toti) -- A full working day with no power left many business owners on the east side frustrated as they had to watch customers walk away.
Power is back on Monday night for more than 20,000 Duke Energy customers who spent more than 10 hours without it.
The outage all started at a substation on Madison Road.
Even when the power came back on after 5 p.m. Monday, at Rookwood many places stayed closed from hair salons to clothing stores.
But at Rally House, selling sporting apparel for only a third of the day didn't keep them from staying open.
Employees at Whole Foods kept calling in and were told to give it another hour and another. Once power was back on, it took more than an hour to open the door.
Some shoppers also tried to make up for lost time.
