After about five years in business, Fork at 532, a locally owned restaurant at 532 Washington St., will close at 10 p.m. Thursday.
Owner/operator Doug van Epps said his revenues were cut in half in 2010 by the economic crisis and an unfair playing field created by subsidies city officials pumped into new restaurants in the Fourth Street parking garage and the new Commons mall.
Through Thursday, the restaurant will be open from 5 to 10 p.m. daily, except Sunday.
"We have a tremendous customer base that we will dearly miss interacting with, and have decided to continue through this weekend and into next week to allow all of our friends once last chance to visit," Van Epps said.
