This weekend many families in B.C. will not only be celebrating Family Day but also the Super Bowl, which may be great for local businesses.
According to Charles Gauthier with the Downtown Business Association, businesses are excited to see if having Super Bowl fall on a long weekend will mean more revenue.
“Certainly Super Bowl is big for our members that are involved in the food and beverage industry and I suspect is going to be another successful year.”
Millions are expected to watch the game, which Gauthier says can be great for business.
He says venues welcome big events like this one right after the holidays where people usually like to save money.
