LITTLE FERRY - Businesses still struggling to reopen following Sandy are hopeful the warm weather brings customers back.

In Little Ferry, The Kabab Shop was just about to open when the storm struck. Owner Mike Bracke wasn't sure he'd ever reopen. "I had my doubts at some points because I was opening in a town that just got annihilated," Bracke says.

He managed to open his kabab and gyro shop two weeks later, but business has been slow. Business owners say residents simply have less to spend following rebuilding costs.
