Local businesses welcome Hard Rock Casino
It seems that every time you hear about a new casino opening up, the complaints from local businesses and residents are not too far behind. Yes, the late night hours and the levels of alcohol spent during the evening may mean there is noise in the early hours but a casino can be a boost to the local economy. This is why it is heartening to hear the local neighbours and businesses of Atlantic City welcoming the Hard Rock Casino which will soon be getting constructed in their local area.
A local diner knows where he will make money
In the short term, a local diner owner is delighted at the prospect of a lot of construction staff working nearby. Construction workers have healthy appetites and the diner is ideally placed to allow the workforce to grab a quick break and enjoy something to eat or a coffee before getting back to work. When the casino opens there will be an increased footfall past the diner which should increase business but the benefits of hungry construction workers is always likely to cheer up a restaurant or diner owner.
Year round business has to be a good thing
The introduction of the casino would also make the resort less seasonal, helping to spread business out over the year. This is always going to be of benefit to a business owner so you can see why so many are keen for the project to get started as quickly as possible. If a casino player gets a big win, who wouldn’t want to be the business that they see when they come out of the casino. There is great scope for making money when you have a new venture open on your doorstep and the Hard Rock Casino looks like being a massive business development. A hotel with spas, gyms, a rock n roll museum and even a Boardwalk extension should be more than enough to draw people to the resort, which should benefit existing businesses.
There will always be complaints about casino projects but there should also be happiness from some quarters as well. A project of this size and scale is likely to bring about a great deal of jobs for the local community, which can never be a bad thing in the current climate. Not every local resident or business is as happy as the Atlantic City residents are about the news they received about the Hard Rock Casino but perhaps they are capable of seeing the bigger picture.
