Jersey Mike's Subs closed

Posted:

Customers looking for a sub Tuesday for lunch were disappointed to find Jersey Mike's Subs locked up.

"We were probably weekly visitors, us and everyone else down at the office. Nice people, they did a great job so we're sad to see them go," says Joe Foli.

"It's a great restaurant and I think the best thing I like here at Mike's was that the Giant sub truly was a giant sub so you got to have a lot of food, maybe two meals so I'll miss that," says Kyle Zaber.

"Just to find out it's closed that was kind of like a bummer and now my boss is probably going to be like 'I really wanted that Philly Steak Cheese Sandwich," says Becky Williams.

But customers aren't the only ones bummed. "It's sad to see that we're having to get out," says Jersey Mike's Subs Owner, Bob Guros. He spent the day packing up the kitchen, preparing to move out by Thursday.

"We've been here for 12 years, we've invested a lot of money building this restaurant."

He has another sub shop in Mishawaka, but he says this South Bend location was special. He says not only could they offer good food to the downtown area, but many of their customers would walk from work.

"I think people will miss us, I really do think people will miss us. We're certainly going to miss our great customers because we've had a wonderful following of people."

It's those customers that he says make the move so difficult. "We feel like we're letting them down."

But most customers aren't counting Jersey Mike's out just yet. "Hopefully we'll see them again downtown somewhere," says Zaber.

But for now, the open sign is no longer lit up. The downtown Jersey Mike's is closed.
