TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Business is generally brisk for shops and restaurants northwest of Tucson during the Accenture Match Play Championship, but this year is different and next year might be even worse.

Aric Mussman, owner of Vero Amore, in northwest Tucson, said the event always brings money to the local economy, but when big name players like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are not playing the crowds just do not show up and money is less. 

Regardless of the crowd size, he will have many more people than normal eating at Vero Amore and his second restaurant Noble Hops.  Mussman said he will take what he can get, because other large events happening in Tucson – the gem show and rodeo have people spending money, but not in his area. 

He said he hopes sales will pick up as match play continues. 

Mussman also said that if the event is not held in Tucson next year, shops and restaurants will suffer even more than they are now.
