Carolina Bob and I walked into the Bon Ton Mini Mart on Thursday morning (June 17). Everyone was saying that Saturday was going to be their last day of operation. Everyone was more or less saying their final goodbyes. They had made arrangements to sell the equipment and everything.
The next morning, Friday (June 18), Carolina Bob and I walked in there and they said that the realtor had prevailed upon them to keep the restaurant open on a month-to-month basis. It’s all contingent on the cook’s health, which is not good. So they are going to stay open (they hope) for at least another six months.
This is good news for all of us, but it is frustrating to me because, as I try to keep you posted on daily developments, they tell me one thing one day and then the opposite the next.
Anyway, it will be open for a few more months, so if you have ever delayed coming here, now is your chance. No excuses if you don’t show up.
Today Carolina Bob and I may eat there for a third day in a row.
