Shopping opportunities abound as Buffalo has become a mecca for occasional sales. There are approximately ten stores that only open for four days each month with merchandise changing all the time. Look for occasional sales the first full Thursday through Sunday weekend on a monthly basis. We also have over 50 retail, antique and specialty stores that are open during the entire month. Fine delicatessens and family restaurants will be sure to satisfy your palette after a day filled with fun activities. Check out our Buffalo Tourism website for a listing of businesses.
