TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The operator of a concession stand inside the Kansas Statehouse says he plans to keep his business open through October rather than shutting it down at the end of this month.

Don Wistuba announced earlier this week that he planned to close the snack-and-sandwich shop he operates on the third floor of the Capitol on Aug. 31. But The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1IOYjcB ) that he postponed the date for two months after hearing from friends who want to help.

He declined to name the friends.

The 59-year-old Wistuba has been blind since birth and has operated the Statehouse concession stand since 1976.

He’s said his business has declined because offices once housed in the Capitol have moved to other buildings and because lobbyists provide free food to legislators.
