A steady stream of customers have been calling and stopping in to Discount Tire in Duluth. They are looking for new or snow tires, to get around in this weather.

"It was really hard coming up the hill. My tires were completely bald. But I called here, and they got me in," said Sam Dougherty.

The manager at the store said that people have been coming in left and right, but that it's been fun.

"We've been here till midnight a few nights. But these guys work together all year round. We're having a good time. It's ok to man-up for a few days here," explained manager Nathan Mackey.

Some customers are having a hard time getting up the driveway to the store, so the guys run out and push the car up. And they're doing it with smiles.
