The residents of Clinton found out Saturday afternoon that Village Inn in Clinton had closed its doors for good without any warning.

Not only was the Clinton store closed, but Village Inn closed more than two dozen locations across the country after the parent company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection this week, according to our news partner Local 4 News.

Our news partner, Local 4 News, reached out to the Village Inn corporate office for a comment and received this email:

“After very careful consideration, we have made the tough but necessary decision to discontinue operations at this location,” said a Village Inn spokesman. “This is never an easy decision to make and one driven by many business factors. It is important to note that all employees who desire to stay with the company will be relocated to another location in the market or will be provided a severance package. Village Inn thanks our loyal guests for their friendship and patronage over the years, and we invite them to join us at one of our many other area locations where they will enjoy the same friendly service and great-tasting food.”

As a Clinton native, it was always fun going with my friends every Wednesday during high school for "free pie Wednesdays." It's unfortunate for the city of Clinton to lose Village Inn as a business but I can promise you, there are plenty of amazing breakfast spots in Clinton.
