A Popular Diner Now Makes An Abrupt and Unexpected Closure

A popular diner now makes an abrupt and unexpected closure, leading confused customers demanding to know the company’s decision.

The Black Bear Diner, located in Redmond, Oregon, announced on Facebook that it has made the decision to close down.

“We’re bear-y sorry to bring you the news that our Redmond, Oregon diner has permanently closed for business,” they wrote.

“We hope you’ll visit any of our 158 other locations across 13 states.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!”

Diners flocked to the comments to probe the abrupt closure, reports The-Sun.

“Oh wow, I had no idea,” one customer wrote.

A second queried, “What happened??”

The U.S Sun previously reported how the chain pulled the plug on its Oakland, California, store in October of last year.

The outlet was located in a notoriously crime-riddled area of California, per the outlet.

Between 2019 and 2023 the Black Bear Diner’s address experienced 643 reported criminal incidents, including 536 reported car break-ins, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

One Trip Advisor reviewer wrote about their dangerous experience eating at the diner, they titled the review “Beware–don’t eat here, it’s not safe!”

“We ate breakfast here on Saturday at 10 am while en route to the Oakland airport,” Andy I. wrote.

“We were there for maybe 30 mins and our car was broken into and all our luggage was stolen as it was parked right across from the door,” they continued.

“Oakland police wouldn’t come and just said file an online report. DO NOT GO HERE IT’S NOT SAFE!!!”

But it’s not all bad news for the casual restaurant chain.

The diner has expanded its US footprint with the opening of three new locations, two in Texas and one in Arizona.

Black Bear Diner CEO Anita Adams said: “The opening of these three locations has launched us into 2024 with remarkable momentum.

These openings align with our strategic expansion plans and are a testament to the unwavering dedication of our franchise partners, and team members across the country.

Our goal remains clear: to bring our unique offering of home-style comfort food and unparalleled guest service coast-to-coast.”

A popular Italian restaurant now announces an unexpected closure after nine years in business, according to an email sent to customers.

Italian Eatery, located in south Minneapolis, Minnesota, told its long-time customers that it planned to shut its doors.

The beloved restaurant, also known as ie, also plans to close its sister restaurant un dito, known for its Sicilian seaside street food, per The US Sun.

They have not announced a closing date but are expected to close between late May and mid-June, according to Bring Me The News.

“As we prepare to close our doors at ie and un dito, we’d like to extend a heartfelt invitation for you to join us for our final months of service,” an email to customers from Carrara $ Co. read.

“Gather with us at the table and let us reminisce over the incredible memories we’ve created together and cherish the moments shared over the past nine years.”

Italian Eatery has been a popular spot since its opening in 2016 and is known for its full-service drinks and dining near Lake Nokomis.

Un dito is a 400-square-foot space that specializes in sips and snacks or afternoon gatherings like you would see in Italy, according to its website.

The restaurant’s “Last Supper” reservations will be released every week and shared in weekly newsletters, according to its website.

“As always, we will continue to reserve walk-in tables at both ie + un dito for our beloved neighborhood,” the announcement read, according to the outlet.

Carrara & Co. also owns due, a focacceria and Italian market in St. Paul, Minnesota that the company calls “Italian Eatery’s spawn, aka quirky little brother,” according to its website.

Despite the Minneapolis closures, due will remain open.

“I’m pleased to inform you that all other Carrara & Co operations remain unaffected, including Due Focacceria, and we are even expanding our services,” according to a statement, reported by NBC affiliate KARE.
