THE BRONX - Bodega and deli owners in the borough are worried over Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed ban on sugary soft drinks, saying it will be unfair to their customers.

During his radio show, Bloomberg said banning sodas and other soft drinks larger than 16 ounces won't affect sales, but store owners disagree.
