Toledo Casino Could Have Big Impact on Detroit

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Some Detroit businesses near the casinos are worried that they might lose customers from Ohio when a new casino in Toledo opens its' doors.

It's a taco Tuesday at Loco's, next to Greektown. Business is booming! There is not a seat to be had. The place is packed with Blue Cross Blue Shield and GM workers.

Assistant Manager Belinda says, even though casino comps are a big factor, she is not worried about losing out-of-state customers.

"Not at all.. There are other restaurants, the Tigers, Football."

Just outside of Loco's is a cab stand. One taxi driver predicts that he will lose anywhere from 30 to 40% of his business.
