Business Profile:

Creekside Sales and Service

First impressions of a community often affect the decision of businesses and individuals whether or not to locate in that community. That is one of the reasons that development of Niagara County's Transit Road Corridor is a top priority for the Town of Lockport, and why the attractive building and display at Creekside Sales & Service is an asset to Lockport. Opened in 1992 by David and Lynn Leising, Creekside Sales & Service's frontage at 6989 South Transit Road is one of the first sights that greet visitors as they cross Tonawanda Creek into Niagara County. The handsomely landscaped front lawn displays the latest in lawn and garden equipment, primarily Cub Cadet, Mahindra, Troy-bilt and Stihl power equipment. Creekside's 10,000 SF interior display and service area boasts an attractive stone and window fa├žade. Joined in the business since 2000 by their son, Stephen, David Leising has steadily built his business on a solid reputation of service after the sale. The business today employs four full time and four part time employees.  Creekside Sales and Service attracts business from Erie, Niagara and Orleans Counties.
