Restaurants say smoking ban is costing them money

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

In one week, the alcohol sales at Katz has dropped 20 percent, and their overall sales 13%. At P.O.E.T.S., the owner says they’re down from 20 percent to 33 percent on any given day and at the Q Pub, where they stopped selling food to allow their customers to smoke, sales are down 36 percent.

Kessler and the other owners are asking for a Federal injunction to stop the ban, fearing the losses will continue as they have in other smoke-free cities according to at least some recent studies.

“They show that Dallas lost 11.8 million the first year that it was in effect in Dallas,” said attorney James Skrobarcek.
