RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Richmond pizza restaurant is permanently closing on Saturday due to the effects of COVID-19 on the business. People’s Pie announced the closure on Facebook yesterday.
The post acknowledged the impact of the pandemic on small businesses, particularly restaurants. The restaurant opened just 9 months ago around the same time that the coronavirus began spreading in Virginia.
Known for their Detroit Style pizzas, People’s Pie says “this isn’t a goodbye.” The business is considering future pizza parties, pop-ups and possibly a new location.
