Wednesday, June 20, 2012
By DEBBIE HALL - Bulletin Staff Writer
The Ryan’s restaurant on Commonwealth Boulevard closed its doors on Wednesday.
An employee who declined to give a name said the restaurant served its last meal Tuesday night, and closed at 8 a.m. Wednesday.
“We all lost our jobs,” the employee said, as would-be lunch patrons pulled into the parking lot in droves.
“There’s no need to get out of your vehicle, sir. There’s no need to get out of your vehicle, ma’am,” the employee repeated to would-be customers. “We’re closed.”
Calls to the company were not immediately returned, but according to online reports in January, the company planned to close 81 stores and filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
