Construction is now completed at the site of the new Metro Mattress location at 6255 South Transit Road.  Metro Mattress will occupy most of the 6,400 square foot building, which will also accommodate a Safelite Auto Glass shop. The Lockport store is one of seven Metro Mattress locations in Western New York. 
Hillman Automotive Center has begun construction of its new state-of-the-art automotive center at 6348 Robinson Road, mile east of Transit Road; the 14,000 square foot facility will enable Hillman to expand from its current 7,200 square foot building immediately
east of the new site. Hillman Automotive has operated at the current Robinson Road site for 10 years, and will invest $1.3 million in the new project.
