Smoke-free law drives patrons away from some Exeter businesses

Sunday, April 24th, 2005

Whereas, J.P.’s Exeter Pub, on Route 3, is losing the bulk of its business and is in fear of closing, according to long-time bartender Linda Osenkowski.

…Neil White, owner of Middle of No-where Diner, who said he wouldn’t want to guess at how many customers he’s lost.

“It’s a large amount of people who used to sit, eat and smoke,” he said. “Now they might get a coffee and run. The ambiance has changed. The locals don’t stay. It definitely affects revenue.”

In the case of J.P.’s Exeter Pub, business relies heavily on smoking customers.

Linda Osenkowski, a 23-year employee, said, “It’s bad. We’re not far from going under. This is just a small, little bar that doesn’t serve food. Just snacks and pizza. It’s really hurt us bad.”
