NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (Feb. 23, 2016) – Western New York retailers looking to expand their presence will have a unique opportunity on the first Saturday of March, when Delaware North will host an event in search of additional local partners for its retail operation in Niagara Falls State Park.
The event, which will be held at The Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls (101 Old Falls Street, Niagara Falls, N.Y. 14303), gives prospective new partners a chance to pitch their products in-person from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 5. Additional information can be found at www.NiagaraFallsStatePark.com/event.aspx.  
“We are looking to expand our base of local vendors and increase products that reflect Western New York’s talent and personality,” said Donna Genesky, vice president of retail for Delaware North’s parks and resorts business. “Local and regional products are of interest to all of our guests. Whether they are Western New Yorkers or international travelers, local products are great gifts or keepsakes.”
Delaware North – a Western New York-based business for more than 100 years – is Niagara Falls State Park’s longtime partner. Delaware North oversees all the food, beverage and retail in the park, including Top of the Falls Restaurant, concessions and three gift shops – including in the recently renovated Cave of the Winds Pavilion. Delaware North invested $1.3 million in 2015 to restore the Cave of the Winds Pavilion to its original splendor, while also bringing modern-day updates, such as electronic food-ordering kiosks and cellphone charging stations.
“Niagara Falls State Park is a one-of-kind place, so visitors should be able to bring home a one-of-a-kind memento of their visit. With the wealth of talent in our community, there is no doubt that moving forward, gifts from Niagara Falls State Park will truly reflect what a special place this is,” said Angela P. Berti, spokesperson for Niagara Falls State Park.
