Black Friday a good day to be a plumber

The day after Thanksgiving is by far the busiest day of the year for Roto-Rooter and other plumbing companies as garbage disposals and plumbing gets overwhelmed with the remains of our national feast.

“It’s definitely the biggest day of the year for us,” said David Wright, a clerk in the Roto-Rooter office. “We double, sometimes triple our business the day after Thanksgiving.”
