PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” 2012 is the year without the plush. But for those behind the scenes at Phil's Souvenir Shop, it's the people â€” not necessarily the items â€” who make a Groundhog Day successful.
"I think the tourists and the people who come into the store are the most interesting," said Mary Ann Jacobson, the shop's head clerk.
"They're all happy to be here. When they're looking at your stuff, you see them smiling and laughing, and it makes for a happy atmosphere."
