The hot weather over the weekend heated up business at Alhambra's cafés and coffee shops, World Journal (世界日报) reports.
Alhambra hit a high of 83 degrees on Saturday and 84 degrees on Sunday, hotter than the mid-60s to 70s throughout the week, according to The Weather Channel. A city boba store owner told World Journal that the rain last week made him worry about his spring and summer business. But he was relieved when his store’s sales doubled this weekend compared to the last.
Starbucks on Atlantic and Valley boulevards was packed with customers looking for cold drinks, World Journal reports, and the drive-through lane was jammed with cars. One customer said she was stuck in traffic as soon as she entered the plaza and waited for more than 30 minutes in the store to get her drink.
The line was also long in an Alhambra frozen yogurt store, and many customers chose to eat the yogurt inside the crowded and noisy store instead of enduring the temperature outside.
