Cobblestone District Business Talks About NHL Lockout Impact | News
Not much wass happening outside First Niagara Center on a night where lots of fans would be milling around if there was no lockout.
We spoke with the manager of a bar and restaurant near the arena, Lagerhaus 95, about their plans to deal with lost business.
"We're not solely reliant just on the Sabres. It's very unfortunate that the lockout is here. It would be extra revenue for everybody in the whole area, but we're not gonna hang our hat on the fact that the Sabres aren't around right now," said Ben Lewis.
Lewis adds the summer crowds that came to concerts and events at Canalside really helped his business get noticed and are leading to repeat visits from that crowd.
