I imagine the restaurants and shops are feeling the pinch of the casino. Gamblers spend their money on gambling, not gift shops or antiques.
The business owners downtown are fools to think they are going to see an increase in their businesses!

I could see if there was a hotel with the casino people MIGHT be inclined to make their way down to patronize the business if they were staying for more than one nite. But unfortunately most are there for just the nite to gamble. I think eventually the "new" will wear off and downtown business will probably get their regular business back, if it's not already to late for them that is.
