Businesses near the Boston Bruins’ TD Garden could lose as much as $1 million per locked out game, according to the Boston Business Journal.
“Roughly each [Bruins] home game is worth anywhere between $850,000 to $1 million,” said Pat Moscaritolo, CEO of the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau. “… Money that is generated outside the four walls of TD Garden. That means spending in the North End, North Station area, spending at restaurants and sports bars, sports paraphernalia, etc.”
James Brooks writes that “anxiety is slowly overtaking” shops around the area.
Restaurant owner Peter Colton paints a grim future for sales during a lockout.
“Without those events, we wouldn’t be here, a lot of other businesses wouldn’t be here,” Colton said. “People don’t come home here at the end of the day, they don’t live here, for the most part.”
