No puffs, fewer profits

Winnipeg – “The supposed groundswell of non-smokers that were going to come out of the woodwork to fill that gap haven’t,” said Doug Stephen, president of WOW Hospitality, which operates several restaurants in Winnipeg, including The Old Spaghetti Factory and Pasta la Vista.

VLT revenues have been down about 20% in Winnipeg and Brandon.
