Update May 16: Apologies for the erroneous republishing, we had a technical glitch.
First reporting September 10, updates at the bottom.
Friendly's Restaurant in Port Royal is the latest in a string of area businesses to announce that they're closing.
According to a sign up on the door, the restaurant will close at 3 p.m. September 12.
The sign goes on to say:
Thank you for 10 great years.
- Your Friendly's Family
According to a spokesman with Friendly's corporate headquarters the decision to close the shop was made by the franchisee and not corporate.
So if you're craving a Friendly's Sunday you better get it before the 12th, because according to the restaurant's website the next closest shop is 140 miles away in Myrtle Beach.
Update September 13: The Island Packet has a brief on the closure which is most noticeable for the quote pointing the finger at the economy; take a read here.
