THE OLD BAIT AND LIFT AT THE NEW FLEETCENTER?
Published July 28, 1995
The invoices filling the mailboxes of the 700 businesses that signed up for executive and skysuite boxes at the new FleetCenter are about 15% higher than the "already formidable rental fees agreed to just a year ago," reports Alex Beam in this morning's BOSTON GLOBE. New Boston Garden Corp. President Larry Moulter explains that the Celtics and Bruins "unexpectedly jacked up" their top ticket prices from $40 to $70 and $60, "which sent the skybox prices skyrocketing." Moulter: "The concept of an increase was never unknown to these people but the specifics certainly came as a surprise" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/28).
