CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — Some business owners worry about the impact the championship game cancellations by the NCAA and the ACC will have on them.
Colin Crossman recently opened the Mayton Inn in Cary.
Town officials estimate they’ll lose about $2.5 million in visitor spending because of all the events cancelled this week.
Republican state lawmakers criticized both organizations for their decisions.
But Crossman says it’s more evidence of the need to repeal House Bill 2.
“Opening a new front in the culture war is not a pro-business thing,” said Colin Crossman, Owner of the Mayton Inn.
“…that the NCAA and now the ACC following suit, using some standards that they haven’t used in venues in other states,” said Rep. Nelson Dollar (R-Wake)
Cary’s Mayor Harold Weinbrecht sent letters Wednesday to the heads of the NCAA and ACC encouraging them to keep Cary in mind for future championships.
