REPORTING LIVE RACHELE MONGIOVI. ((“THERE’S BEEN A LOT OF INTEREST IN THE BLUE BLUBS. BLUE BULBS OF ANY KIND, WE’RE COMPLETELY OUT. PARTY BULBS, STANDARD BULBS, CHRISTMAS BULBS, ANYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH BLUE THAT WILL LIGHT UP OTHER THAN THE BULBS ON THE TREES, WE HAVE NOTHING. AND THOSE WILL PROBABLY START GOING ALSO.”)) WESTERN NEW YORKERS ARE GETTING CREATIVE IN HOW THEY CHOOSE TO HONOR OFFICER CRAIG LEHNER. FROM BLUE PUMPKINS TO BLUE LIGHTS, IT’S HARD TO DRIVE DOWN A STREET WITHOUT SEEING THE COMMUNITY SUPPORT FOR THE LEHNER FAMILY. NEWS 4’S JENN SCHANZ TELLS US HOW THIS MOVEMENT IS IMPACTING BUSINESS. JENN? STAFF AT THE HOME DEPOT SAYS SHELVES OF BLUE LIGHTS WERE PICKED CLEAN IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS….. MOST OF THE CUSTOMERS LOOKING FOR BULBS TO HONOR OFFICER CRAIG LEHNER. I SPOKE TO THE ASSISTANT MANAGER FOR MERCHANDISING AT THE HOME DEPOT ACROSS THE STREET, RON LEWIS, AND HE SAYS BLUE BULBS AREN’T REALLY THE SORT OF ITEM THEY’RE USED TO SEEING FLY OFF THE SHELVES. BUT LEWIS SAYS WITH THE NEWS OF LEHNER’S DEATH, PEOPLE ARE FLOCKING INTO THE STORE TO SEE HOW THEY SO THEIR SUPPORT IN SOME WAY. THESE PARTY BULBS WERE THE LAST TO GO…. YOU CAN SEE EVERY OTHER COLOR IS IN STOCK, BUT THE DEMAND FOR BLUE WAS SO HIGH…. THE STORE JUST COULDN’T KEEP UP. LEWIS SAYS EVEN WHEN CUSTOMERS DON’T VERBALIZE WHAT THE BULBS ARE FOR, STAFF AT THE HOME DEPOT HAS A PRETTY GOOD IDEA. AS OF ABOUT 9 O’CLOCK LAST NIGHT… THE BULBS WERE SOLD OUT. LEWIS SAYS ESPECIALLY FOR THIS STORE…. LEHNER’S DEATH FEELS PERSONAL FOR A LOT OF THE STAFF. ((“THIS STORE HERE HAS A PRECINT AROUND THE CORNER. A LOT OF THOSE OFFICERS WHO OWN PROPERTY AROUND HERE SHOP HERE, AND WE KNOW THEM ON A FIRST NAME BASIS SO THERE’S A CONNECTION. EVEN THOUGH I DIDN’T KNOW THAT OFFICER, THERE WAS A CONNECTION. AND SEVERAL OF THEM HAVE BEEN IN, AND THEY HUGGED ME.”)) ((“WHEN WE LOSE AN OFFICER, YOU LOSE ALMOST A FAMILY MEMBER.”)) LEWIS SAYS HE WASN’T REALLY SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE SPRUNG TO ACTION SO QUICKLY. HE SAYS “THAT’S JUST THE CITY OF GOOD NEIGHBORS.” AS WE WERE FILMING THERE TODAY, A WOMAN WALKED IN LOOKING FOR BLUE BULBS, AND SHE LUCKED OUT… SNAGGING A LEFT OVER. AS OF NOW, ANY AND ALL BLUE-LIGHTS ARE GONE, ASIDE FROM CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTS, WHICH
