Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Construction along Main Avenue in Fargo is proving to be a big problem for some businesses. It's only been going on for a couple of weeks, but already workers say they've seen a drop in customers.

The Manager of Mode Clothing Store says it's taking a big toll on the store's business. This time of the year, back to school is its busiest time, but with so much construction and zero parking out front, it's not the case.

She says when people come in from out of town they're usually not familiar with the city and just pass by.

“If they drive by and they see a bunch of construction, they might automatically think hmm, maybe they're closed, since there's no parking, but there is parking on the sides but it is kind of tricky to get to.”

Hagen says she wishes the construction was done earlier, but hopes it gets done as soon as possible.
