Can we blame it on high taxes? Many people still not home yet? Too much commercial space to begin with? Post-Sandy syndrome? There are other restaurants that are for sale too, but I’m just posting Paninis because the place has been dark for a while now. As far as Geri’s is concerned, I heard it’s been purchased; it does appear to be under renovation. I’ll post more info as I hear it.
This is definitely a concern with so many of these establishments struggling, especially with the quiet winter months coming. Now is the best time to support all our local restaurants and businesses. Seriously, if you plan on going out, really try to stay local. I’m not liking this trend.
