Governor Andrew Cuomo announcing yesterday a crackdown on businesses violating state regulations amid the coronavirus pandemic.  7 bars had their liquor licenses suspended - including The Village Line on Kenmore Avenue in Kenmore.  On July 24th, an SLA investigator entered the establishment and observed three patrons drinking at the bar without food.  When the investigator requested a menu, he was told that he could go next door for pizza and bring it back to the bar.  Not having food available on premises is a violation.

When its lease on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga is up, Lighthouse Technology Services will be moving into the Seneca One Tower.  Business First reports the company will begin moving in next month, with a five-year lease on the 28th floor.

Retro World Toys & Games will hold a grand opening and ribbon cutting at its new location on August 8th.  The store opening will come at noon at 230 Center Road in West Seneca’s Wimbledon Plaza.

Laurie Merletti has been named President of Physician Enterprise for Catholic Health.
