The Floristry is ending its long run at 1367 Delaware Avenue along Gates Circle.  Business First reports the decision to close the shop - that opened in 1963 - comes months after The Floristry’s immediate neighbor, Mark Hutchinson from Hutch’s restaurant, bought the building for $471,802.

The former Buffalo Cardiology & Pulmonary Associates Inc. building in Amherst is headed to a court-ordered foreclosure auction.   That auction is set for 10am on April 12 at Erie County Hall. 

Business First notes the site of the former Fountain Court Motel in Clarence, located at 9560 Main St. across from Clarence Central High School, is being eyed as a mixed-use development that will be anchored by 24 market rate apartments and 16,000 square feet of retail space.  Stephen Development is working with the Town of Clarence Industrial Development Agency on a series of tax breaks and incentives for the $7.4 million project, called the Main Center of Clarence.

March 17th and 18th and 24th and 25th have been designated Maple Weekends across New York State.  In 2017, the Empire State had 2.65 million taps, making it the second largest maple producing state in the U-S.  There are 50 maple farms in WNY alone.  For more on upcoming events, go to www.mapleweekend.com.
