Labor Day is now behind us, marking the winding down of the summer tourism season. With the Maine Turnpike Authority reporting a 2.1% increase in Labor Day weekend traffic on the Maine Turnpike over a year ago — and a 4.7% increase in turnpike traffic between January and July compared to the same period in 2014 — there's reason to be optimistic about how the state's tourist-driven economy is faring this year. But that's tempered by the low value of the Canadian dollar compared to the U.S. dollar, resulting in fewer Canadian visitors and cross-border shoppers. So, we're curious:
Is summer 2015 shaping up to be a better season than 2014 for Maine businesses?
