"Things have been alright and we've been quite busy over the past couple of weeks. I've noticed more people have been coming in since the nice weather."

"I've not noticed a big difference as summer's not really arrived yet - it's still cold at the moment, so we're just getting our regular customers in. It might pick up in the near future though."
