BUFFALO, N.Y.- Several North Buffalo residents are upset about a plan to turn a former supermarket into a storage facility.
For decades the Budwey's Supermarket on Kenmore Avenue served people in North Buffalo, the University District and the Town of Tonawanda who needed a place for groceries. However, owner Frank Budwey announced last year that he was selling the majority of his stores, including the Kenmore Avenue location.
The store was purchased by Joe Dash, the owner of Dash's markets, who had originally planed to turn the location into another Dash's. Dash eventually closed the store because of the impact road construction would have on business. He's now exploring the possibility of using the land to build a storage facility for his stores.
