A Restaurant in Pennsylvania Now Confirms An Unexpected Closure

A restaurant in Pennsylvania now confirms an unexpected closure after a sign left on the door officially notified its customers of the shutter.

Arby’s fans are saying goodbye to one location as signs confirm its end while thanking loyal customers.

The fast-food chain has permanently closed the doors to one of its locations in Wilson Borough, Pennsylvania.

Arby’s is the second-largest sandwich restaurant company in the world with over 3,500 locations globally.

No reason for this week’s closure has yet been given but if Arby’s fans go to the now-shuttered location all they will see are cardboard boxes scattered across the diner.

Some signs have been put up at the site thanking customers for their service.

“We want to thank all our valued customers but unfortunately this location is closed,” the sign on the door reads.

“Thank you for all the years we had together…hope to see you all soon.”

The note signed by management and staff members directs customers to the nearest locations that are still open.

One is an Arby’s in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, and the other is in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Phillipsburg location opened in January, taking over the vacant lot of a shuttered Ahart’s Supermarket.

Locals who have reacted to the news on Facebook are not surprised by the latest closure.

“Meh, they had the worst customer service at that location anyway,” one wrote in the comments to the news.

“I was wondering why the place was still there, it’s horrible and nobody ever goes there,” another brutal comment read.

Some blamed the closure on the chain for putting two stores too close together.

“There is another Arby’s literally a couple miles down the road,” he wrote.

“I don’t think I have ever seen 2 Arby’s that close to one another.”

“There is a Brand New Arby’s right over the bridge in Phillipsburg!” another said.

Meanwhile, others have blamed the state neighborhood as they debated what they want to replace the shuttered sandwich restaurant.

“I have driven around Wilson for work reasons not really a nice looking town,” one Facebook user said.

Suggestions for a replacement came flooding in with requests for a Popeyes, a Jersey Mikes, and a Maryland Fried Chicken.

In recent times, the local area has seen numerous closures and vacant lots left to rot.

An LA Fitness location that was once near the now-shuttered Arby’s closed its doors four months ago, reports The US Sun.

Applications for unemployment benefits now surge to new highs, a sign that the white-hot labor market is starting to cool off.

First-time applications for unemployment benefits rose last week to 231,000, the highest level since August, per CNN.

Thursday’s data also showed that the number of continuing claims, or applications from people who have filed for unemployment for at least one week, was 1.78 million.

That’s an increase of 17,000 from the prior week, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The latest numbers come less than a week after the monthly jobs report showed the US economy added just 175,000 positions in April, less than economists expected and a steep drop-off from prior months.

US employers have now added an average of 245,500 jobs per month, versus 2023’s 251,000-per-month average.

Still, hiring remains strong. Although the unemployment rate ticked up to 3.9% last month, it’s the 27th consecutive month that the jobless rate has held under 4%, matching a streak last seen in the late 1960s.

Weekly jobless claims data tends to be volatile but, while one week’s worth of data “does not a trend make,” said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at Fwdbonds.

“We can no longer be sure that calm seas lie ahead for the US economy if today’s weekly jobless claims are any indication.”

Company layoffs are picking up, hinting at caution on the part of companies as they weigh the outlook for the second half of the year,” he wrote in a note Thursday.

The Federal Reserve has been battling inflation by raising its key lending rate in the hopes of slowing the economy.

While the labor market has so far resisted those efforts, remaining white hot for the past 18 months despite 11 rate hikes from the central bank, Fed Chair Jerome Powell said last week that demand has “cooled from its extremely high level of a couple of years ago.”

Ian Shepherdson at Pantheon Economics said in a note Thursday: “We’d need to see at least a month of elevated readings to convince us that the trend really has turned.”
