Gear for Adventure has leased space in the Premier Plaza, at 3906 Maple Road across from the Boulevard Mall.  Business First notes the retailer specializes in equipment and apparel for seasonal activities including hiking, camping, snowshoeing and paddling.  The original store is located on Buffalo Street in Hamburg.

Bath & Body Works is re-opening Friday in a new, more expansive store at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls USA.  The store remains in its former location across from Brooks Brothers.    

The Basil Family Dealerships has partnered with the Veterans One-stop Center of Western New York to launch the fifth annual “Vehicles for Vets” campaign.  Beginning Memorial Day Weekend, the public can nominate a veteran or active serving military member who they believe deserves a new car from Basil.  For more, you can follow this link.
