"We lost half of the four-year income for four months," Friley said. He said the construction project of the city that closes all traffic to Buttermilk.
Add business property taxes to $ 11,000 and $ 25,000 in recent years and Friley said, but the choice was not closed at the store store this year.

According to Ruddy, a recent study carried out by the federations spent a "sustainable almost double duration" and "needs to figure out a way to control budget budgets" or to risk more business.
The closure of Buttermilk was announced online Friday and Friley said the next weekend was the busiest eater since it was opened more than three years ago.
Friley said that expecting a new position in Buttermilk to be opened in the future but "definitely getting ready to sign a Calgary lease" is exploring the opportunities for licensing and franchising in restaurants in other Canadian cities.
