After 42 years an old standby is closing their doors for good. The owners have had the building up for sale since the spring.

The final day on Central Avenue will be on July 15th. So strange to hear and see an old favorite like Grandma's Pies and Restaurant become nothing more than a memory to Albany.

Manager D'Arcie Degener said we are overwhelmed, " we are short on wait and bus staff and I'm going to lose my job after 33 years", Degener said while holding back tears.

The closing, set for Sunday, July 15th was announced in a post on Facebook and on it's on its website Saturday night while no reason was given for the closure after 42yers of business, Degener said that co-owners Dave Houle and Ron Raylinski could not keep up with the rents. By 4 pm the post was shared with 2,300 times in less than 24 of its posting.
