With Saint Patrick's Day right around the corner, people are preparing for the parade and getting ready to enjoy some green beer at local bars. 

Other local businesses are trying to make some green on all that green apparel.

Erie Apparel and Tipperary West say this is a busy time of year for them.

Erie Apparel has been busy making Erie inspired t-shirts for St. Patty's Day and Tipperary West is known for selling all sorts of Irish products.

These local spots are great for those looking for that unique shirt, or trying to catch that Irish import sale going on right now. 

The shop owners tell me it's all about having fun and celebrating the luck of the Irish.
