“BIG has been a fantastic addition to the Station North community. Since they have arrived, there has been a noticeable increase in people visiting the area, which has helped support all of the surrounding businesses. There is also a greater sense of safety and security having an increased population. The staff and performers are wonderful, as well as a very talented group of people and we LOVE having them as our next-door neighbor.”
