Friday morning on FOX and Friends, North Country Store manager Matthew Montroy discussed the heavy impact of inflation on the cost to run his store in upstate New York.
Montroy shared that his electricity bill has doubled to $2,000 in just one month. He explained that he has been trying to keep the prices as low as possible to keep running his store, but with inflation it has been a challenge. Montroy expressed gratitude for his customers who continue to shop in his store since everyone is feeling the burden of rising prices.
Montroy said that Washington needs to stop blaming the business people for the rising costs who need to make a living. He added that blaming Putin and the war is not an acceptable excuse for the price increases.
