The dreary former Burger King at Main and Mohawk has finally sold. DC Wholesale Inc. purchased the building yesterday for $140,000. Dollar City Wholesale, owned by Shaker Abuhamra, is located at 1210 E. Ferry Street. Abuhamra’s plans for the property are unknown. The two-story, 5,865 sq.ft. building, built in 1978 with seating for 140, had been owned by a New Jersey-based corporation.
WNY School of Bartending had been looking to buy the building and relocate its programs from Clarence to the site. The school was planning to expand its offerings with a culinary arts center, full-scale restaurant and a barber program.
The Burger King property has been empty since the restaurant closed in September 1998.
