A report in this week's Business First says the goal is to create a vibrant identity for its three area casino operations and to lead a long-term marketing campaign into Southern Ontario, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Renovations are complete at the Niagara Falls casino. Work is underway to expand operations in Salamanca. Seneca Gaming is supposed to transform the Buffalo casino into a permanent site. Together, the three casinos attract more than 10 million patrons annually.
Residential home sales in the Buffalo Niagara region climbed three percent in October, but prices dropped more than six percent compared to a year ago. So far for the year, total home sales are down 8 percent compared to last year and down 13 percent from 2009.
