Uncle Andy’s Diner In South Portland To Shut Its Doors Forever
COVID-19 is taking another landmark restaurant from us. Uncle Andy's Diner in South Portland, Maine is closing after 66 in business, according to the Portland Press Herald. The owner Dennis Fogg told the Herald he will stay open for takeout until May 31st. He also said that people do not think of local diners when they order take-out. They tend to go to national chains instead. This is what has "devastated his business."
Fogg's three announcements on Facebook are being met with much sadness not only from his regular customers, but also from tourists who had visited Uncle Andy's when they were in South Portland. My people have asked if Fogg has explored all of his options. However, one of the restaurant's posts state that it did not get the PPP Loan that was applied for.
