Another Bar Closing; Owner Blames Anti-Smoking Law

By Larry Wright. CREATED Jan 25, 2013

Superbowl Sunday,  February 3rd will be the last day in business for Knightyme Bar and Billards near West Bypass and Division in Springfield.

Owner Jim Knight tells KOLR10 the city's smoking ban is the reason his business is going under.

Knight says trade in his place has been off close to 60 percent since the ban was imposed and he can no longer afford to stay in business.

The smoking ban has been supported twice by voters and upheld two times by the courts.
