STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- The switch to Daylight Saving Time means an uptick in business for at one clock shop in Staunton.

Dean Sarnelle, the owner of Once Upon a Time, said most people have problems when they move the hands out of sync with the clock's chime.

"Going forward you always stop and let it strike each time and it'll be correct. If you went ahead too fast without letting it strike, certain clocks with the count wheel strike will get out of sequence," said Sarnelle.

He said other people may break a pin or jam a gear trying to change their clocks.

The older the clock, the harder it is for him to fix. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
