NEW CITY, NY – Boston Market in New City has officially closed after more than 20 years. Employees on Tuesday were seen clearing the store of equipment and trash. The restaurant’s front window had a sign posted at the entrance notifying potential patrons of the closure.
“Thank you for your support and patronage,” the sign said. “It has been a privilege and honor to serve you. Unfortunately, this Boston Market restaurant has closed.”
The New City store is 1 of 45 that have closed nationwide in the last week.
In a letter to employees dated July 8 and shared with members of the media Monday, CEO Frances Allen acknowledged closing six locations on June 30 and another 39 on Sunday as part of a “broad-based analysis” of its locations.
“We must take steps to ensure our operational structure will support long-term sustainability,” Allen said in a letter to employees. “Part of that effort involves continuously analyzing our geographic footprint and real estate portfolio to assess the ongoing viability of locations.”
