KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Some businesses around town opened late or didn't open at all Thursday because of the snow. The Pinnacle at Turkey Creek delayed opening until noon to give them time to clear the parking lots. But even then, not every business decided to open.

Most of the shops in Franklin Square on Kingston Pike decided not to open up after closing early Wednesday night. Both West Town Mall and Knoxville Center Mall waited to open until 1 p.m.

It's All So Yummy Cafe also opened a bit later than normal at noon instead of 11 a.m.

"We did delay it by an hour just because some of our employees live on places that are hard to get here so we have to take that into consideration first and foremost," said owner Kim Wilcox. "It's been a little bit slower than usual and I think some people were probably questioning whether certain businesses are open and they're uncertain."

At Frank's Barbershop, meanwhile, customers were still coming in, though not all the employees were able to make it in. The shop decided to open three hours later than usual and reschedule some appointments.
