NORTH TONAWANDA —
Rizek began refurbishing the building as well as the three apartments behind it that had incurred smoke damage, while he also purchased the heavily damaged structure next door that had previously been home to a union outfit, and turned it into a parking lot.
And on Monday his new entrepreneurial endeavor will come in to play, when The Everything Store kicks off Rizek’s next venture, with a new facade, interior and items from home decor, to mobile phones and other household items.
Rizek said that despite the advice of some friends and family, part of the reason he decided to move forward with a lawsuit is to continue efforts to clear his name.
“I’m still suffering up to this day,” he said.
