BELMONT - Easter Sunday is tomorrow and stores on Arthur Avenue in Belmont say business has been booming all day as residents line up to buy food for Easter dinner.

Anthony Ruscigno, who works at Joe's Italian Deli, says Saturday is their busiest day on Easter weekend, and the full staff has been working hard since this morning. Deli employees say they've made about 400 pounds of mozzarella cheese on Saturday alone.

At Artuso Pastry Shop across the street from Joe's, general manager Natalia Corridori says they've been producing extra items for Easter but are also making sure to keep track so they'll be prepared for next year.
