Beloved Restaurant On Monmouth County, NJ Boardwalk Closes After 33 Years Of Business
This one is going to hurt.
Not only do I have another closing announcement, but it is for a business who has been operating for more than 30 years at the Jersey Shore.
According to News12.com, "the iconic Avon Pavilion has closed after 33 years of service due to health reasons and the end of a contract."
That's right. The summer of 2022 was their last season.
The announcement was made on Avon Pavilion's Facebook Page earlier this week breaking the sad news.
In the well-crafted goodbye, owners and management thank their loyal customers, generations of employees and anyone who has honored their location with any type of memorable celebration.
"Generations of employees and guests alike, united as a community through 33 years of triumphs and tribulations... celebrations, graduations, marriages, births and life events," they shared. "Together, we rebuilt the Avon Pavilion from the ground up after storms and floods, several times over. We persevered through a global pandemic."
The Monmouth County staple became a beloved Jersey Shore restaurant who regularly put on live shows and concerts so it is no surprise that there has been a strong reaction from the public.
Comments filled with photos and loving messages came flooding in!
They say all good things must come to an end....but that does not mean we have to be happy about it.
We do know, however, that plans are already in place for a new business to take over this space. We just don't know who it will be....yet....
"The Borough of Avon will soon be holding a public bidding for the leasing of the restaurant building and boutique. It is our sincere hope that the new tenant who moves onto the magnificent Avon-by-the-Sea boardwalk, cherishes the beautiful town and community as much as we have," concluded the goodbye message from Avon Pavilion.
What kind of place do you hope to see take over?
