Smoking Ban Links

Nicotine Nannies claim smoking bans are good for business. But if that were the case, could this list exist, and could it be so huge? (Please note, this is only a small sample of articles available on the subject.)

Smoking ban, less traffic grills Captain Ribman’s Meat Market

Tuesday, October 5th, 2004

The Meat Market, 811 New Hampshire St., will close for good tomorrow.

The Meat Market is not the only establishment the ban has affected.

Tanner’s Bar & Grill’s sales have been down by 20 to 30 percent since the ban started, said Susan Wood, day manager at Tanner’s, 1540 Wakarusa Drive. Tanner’s has only been open since September 2003, but Wood said she could tell a difference in the business.

“My bar used to be lined with smokers every lunch,” Wood said.

Wood doesn’t see those people anymore. The numbers have dropped and there’s no other feasible cause, Wood said.
