'Brexit' could help a local importer

As the passage of "Brexit" continues to send shock waves around the world, at least one Buffalo-based company may benefit. Victoria Parker, owner of Parker's Proper Fish on South Park Avenue, says the drop in the pound could save her company money on food imports from England. As a U.S. resident, Parker says she doesn't think Brexit will impact her personally, but she's says it's a divisive issue.  

"Just go on Facebook — friends and family, everybody's split 50/50. It's a hard one. I think it was a tough decision for people because it's an unknown," Parker said. 

Along with owning a restaurant on South Park Avenue that specializes in British cuisine, Parker has an online business that ships popular English foods across the U.S.
