WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Mother's Day provided a big boost in sales for many local restaurant owners.

"It'll be good for the staff," said Jeremy Bailey the owner of Harbor Masters restaurant. "The servers, get everyone out and stop thinking about the economy for a little while."

Workers at Eddie Romanelli's restaurant in Wilmington say they have been busy all week because of college graduations.

"This weekend actually, we had to cut off reservations Friday and Saturday," said Manager Alicia Gurgul. "Due to UNCW graduation as a week ago and the same thing for Mother's Day."
