Mighty deal


Tonawanda News — “We started a rewards program knowing that Walmart was being built,” he said. “The customers (are) getting 3 percent back through a gift card. I believe it’s part of the reason for sales.” 

Budwey said he is still fighting to regain roughly $5,700 in back payments from the Valentie’s owners, with the recent city court appearance of one former owner postposted. Terry Valenti was extradited to Texas earlier this year to face forgery charges stemming from Florida. 

But Budwey said his focus now is less on the past than the present and future. 

“We’re just totally delighted with the new tenant and very happy with how sales have been,” Budwey said.
