(Buffalo, NY) Even though the Super Bowl is being held in Indianapolis, it is having an effect on business in Western New York.

At the Anchor Bar on Main Street in Buffalo, employees have spent the past few days preparing 15,000 chicken wings for shipment across the United States.

According to owner, Ivano Toscani, fans are so desperate to get Anchor bar wings for their Super Bowl parties, that they are willing to pay close to $100 per bucket.

"Remember, Fed-Ex charges more than the wings itself," adds Toscani.

The wings are pre-cooked, then frozen, and are shipped with heating instructions and an Anchor Bar tee-shirt.

With Williamsville native, Rob Gronkowsi, taking the field for the New England Patriots, demand for his jersey has exceeded supply.

Sporting goods stores in the Williamsville area report that customers are still looking for Gronkowki's football jersey, but they have all been sold out.
