Homecoming Weekend Expected To Have Big Impact On Economy

Homecoming weekend at East Carolina University will bring thousands of alumni, parents and their families to Greenville and local businesses are ready to serve them. Besides graduation and family weekend, homecoming will draw people from all over the country. Stores like the University Book Exchange are already seeing an influx of customers coming in through the door. Anything associated with the Pirates are flying off the shelves. But the book store isn't the only business that's expected to be packed. Restaurants along 5th Street are expected to be packed as well. Saturday morning you can watch the East Carolina University Homecoming parade.
