The ever-changing landscape of business in retail and food service is hard to keep up with since last year. The pandemic has caused headaches for businesses with both ever-changing mandates, and staffing shortages.

Many restaurants across the country have left dining rooms closed, with only drive-thru or takeout options available, with staffing sort shorthanded.

One business at the Walden Galleria in Cheektowaga is set to reopen this Friday after a long absence at Western New York's largest mall.

According to Buffalo Business First, Bravo! in the Walden Galleria is finally set to reopen on Friday, December 3rd. They have been closed since early in the pandemic.

Bravo! had original, plans to reopen its doors in the spring of 2021, but because of staffing issues, they had to push it back to now.

The reopening comes during Erie County's mask mandate, which was put back in place last Tuesday morning at 6 am. Everyone over the age of 2 is required to wear a mask at all indoor public places, except venues who have a strict vaccine mandate set in place (KeyBank Center, Highmark Stadium).

It's also the holiday season, so having Bravo! back open when people will be busier with Christmas shopping is at least some good timing, since many who visit the Walden Galleria love dining in at one of their establishments while they do shopping before Christmas.
