Pizza Junction closing Restaurant... (Buffalo)

... But still operating as a special orders business, according to their website.

Any insight as to why this is?!

Man I will miss them. Certainly won't be ordering to heat in my own oven. Wouldn't be the same. And I’m guessing costly to ship out of town.

      Sadly, I have nothing to report. The online Pizza Junction's web site is down.

        I lived and worked a few blocks form Pizza Junction from 1980 to 1990 and when we go back to the Buffalo area every year, we always got Junction pizza. Our last trip back was this past July and sadly, no Pizza Junction. My son told me it was going to be sold but something happened and the deal fell through. Pizza Junction was the first meal we had in our new house back in 1981 really miss it.

          Reading about ordering pizza by mail, even from the next town over, was strange. Here's the latest on the new owners:

            Thank you smooter!

            I'm glad no one was hurt. Yeesh.

            I hope this ugly incident doesn't affect the reopening of Pizza Junction as we knew and loved it.

                From the information I can find online (PJ web site, Buffalo and Tonawanda news), it has not reopened.
