Grab and Go Newstand Doing Well

In fall of last year the NFTA's downtown bus terminal, located at 181 Ellicott Street, received a new tenant - a Grab & Go Newsstand that features fresh food items and other snacks as well as convenience merchandise for travelers.  The store is owned operated by Amhed Adhadhari and is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Business has been good and Amhed indicated he is very pleased.  "The Grab and Go has been doing well since we opened.  The downtown terminal hosts a lot of individuals using Metro or Greyhound services, and it can be very busy at times.  Having an option for individuals to shop for items quickly and easily while traveling through the bus station has seemed to make a lot of people happy, whether they are short term visitors or returning customers," says Ahmed.

In the future Ahmed is also going to be opening another Grab & Go at the NFTA Metro's renovated Main and Allen Rail Station near the base of the University at Buffalo's Jacobs School of Medicine.
