Businesses Looking to Attract Fans During State Tournament

By  | 

Tons of people in Lincoln this week for the Boy's State Tournament are excited to check out local shops and restaurants.

Businesses in the Haymarket and Railyard have seen a boom in business, but places that are not downtown are also trying to draw fans through their doors.

Penguin Pit Stop at 70th and Vine is one business offering specials to those fans that come and check them out. All people have to do is wear their team's colors or attire.

Co-owner Marsha Hunzeker says it's hard to compete with the downtown area, but they hope they can catch fans on their way in or out of town.

Hunzeker also says being close to Gateway Mall also helps because so much traffic is drawn to that area.
