Restaurateur says smoking ban has crippled business

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

Rod Anderson said his 16,000-square-foot Hereford House has seen sales dip $10,000 a week since a smoking ban took affect in Lawrence in July.

The staff has been cut by 16, to 74 people, to cut expenses. Receipts from tourists have dropped 40 percent. Bar business is down $1,000 to $1,500 daily.

“Happy hour, Friday nights, the place was packed,” Anderson said of the restaurant’s bar. “Now there’s five people there.”
