We are witnessing the end of an era here people.  We thought that the rest of our local Friendly's were safe from closing but it seems as though they are trying to ween us off those super melts slowly.  Five more restaurants get the axe.

In the beginning of fall we learned that the majority of our Albany based Friendly's locations were going to close.  It left a few open, but as of last night five more restaurants have shut down operation leaving us with just a handful scattered around the area.

Our sister station reports that out of the original 16 locations, we are now down to five.  Not only does this mean it will be hard to get a crowd pleaser, but it unfortunately means that a lot of people are now out of jobs.  That's always a terrible loss.  Maybe thaey can all get jobs at the new Trader Joe's?
