Cigarettes smoking will be banned on the areas of Walden Galleria starting with May 31. The Cheektowaga mall is one of 15 shopping big centers conducted by the Pyramid Management Group in New York and Massachusetts that will forbid the use of tobacco products everywhere on its property even on outdoor parking places. “We all believe that this new legislation will not only support our employees and clients who are very sensitive to cigarettes smoke or are trying to quit, but it will supply a more pleasing and healthier shopping experience to the millions of clients who come through our doors every day,” declared James L. Soos, Pyramid’s director of asset management who once worked as general manager at Walden Galleria.
Walden Galleria made the public announcement that it will be a “smoke-free property starting with May 31”. It also will propose smoking cessation courses for free in the community room at the mall every Thursday, starting with next week.
The courses will start from 8 to 9 a.m. on March 29 to April 19. Unintentionally, the mall will present a free event, “Kick Butts Day 2012,” which was sponsored by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids.
