Webster staple closed


Tonawanda News — ”I’m going to rehab the whole building,” he said. “I’m putting on a new storefront and basically opening up the first floor and then look for a suitable tenant.” 

Soemann already has purchased other buildings along Webster Street, including the one housing the Canalside Creamery, an ice cream and custard parlor. 

Siford, in the meantime, said both he and his mother are happy to step away from the family business, though worries persist over where their regular customers will migrate. He added that jobs were found for several of his employees at other local watering holes. 

”Our plan now is to relax for the winter,” he said. “We’re planning to go to Tennessee, where my mother is from, then come back to town. We’re going to stay in the City of Tonawanda where we live and we’re still going to stay active.”
