43 Stevens St, Lockport New York
You will find us nestled along the Historic Erie Canal in the City of Lockport. Windsor Village is just a bridge away from Rt. 78 and blocks away from Rt. 31. We welcome you to quiet neighborhood in a world of its own, filled with whimsy and historical charm. Within walking distance of the High St. Bridge which overlooks the "Rock Cut" a 20 foot high stone wall blasted out of solid stone with powder left over from the War of 1812. You can just imagine the skill of the Irish immigrants as the blasting echoed through the cut! You can also visit us by following the Erie Canalway Trail which extends from Market St. down State Street to Amherst. Lockport is the home of great family attractions like the Lockport Caves, Erie Canal Cruises, The Erie Canal Discovery Center and the new Cornerstone Ice Arena increasing tourism traffic from 65K to 125K per year.

Why Buy Locally?
STRENGTHEN YOUR LOCAL ECONOMY!
Each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money (source 2) to your local economy than one spent at a chain (hundreds of times more than online purchases) -- a benefit we all can bank on.
CREATE JOBS AND OPPORTUNITIES!
Not only do independent businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue, they also are the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc., expanding opportunities for local entrepreneurs.
CREATE A HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT!
Independent, community-serving businesses are people-sized. They typically consume less land, carry more locally-made products, locate closer to residents and create less traffic and air pollution. (source 3)
More efficient land use and more central locations mean local businesses put less demand on our roads, sewers, and safety services. They also generate more tax revenue per sales dollar. The bottom line: a greater percentage of local independent businesses keeps your taxes lower. (source 4)
