Green Bay businesses see boost with Packers schedule release
GREEN BAY -- Football season is months away, but people in Green Bay are already gearing up for the Green and Gold.
It's all because the Packers schedule was announced this week. The announcement causes a flurry of activity for hotels and businesses.
Nobody knows this better than Brad Toll, the head of the Green Bay Convention and Vistors Bureau.
"When the schedule comes out, it's nearly a holiday here in the Green Bay area."
He says hotels have to add extra staff for the day after the schedule comes out in order to field all the calls for bookings.
On the flip side, he says businesses in the area are working to figure out which conventions and weddings they need to move to weekends opposite games, and which ones can be squeezed in.
