Bill Gray’s will continue its lease for the restaurant, tap room, snack bar and Abbott’s Frozen Custard for the next 30 years
Director of Programming and Marketing Chris Woodworth said, “We're extremely ecstatic to have them as a partner but it also speaks volumes about what we're doing here at the facility now."
The Amerks and several college and youth hockey teams practice on the rinks at the arena. Birthday parties and tournaments are big draws as well.
