High School Graduations Boost Business

Posted: Updated:
High school graduation season is here and area businesses are cashing in.

“There are tons of graduations, graduation parties and rentals,” said Kimberly Beck with Camelot Party Rentals.

 Employees have been busy taking rental orders all week long. “Probably around 100 families are coming in that are having celebrations for graduations,” said Beck.

She says this is their busiest time of year, starting off with the University of Nevada Graduation ceremony, parties in Douglas County and Carson City, lasting through this week's ceremonies from Washoe County high schools. “Right now is our peak time,” she said. “We are busy every single weekend.”

It’s also busy at area supermarkets including Scolari’s in South Reno. Thursday, floral manager Marion Cetovick blew up about 50 graduation balloons alone. “I blew up four packs of twelve,” she said. “That’s quite a few.”

It’s not just balloons, but roses, mixed bouquets and leis. The bakery and deli manager says they have taken upwards of 50 graduation cake orders this week, with even more to come.
