You may recall that this is not the first sudden closure for the eatery, which is locally famous for its pancakes.
The previous owners, John and Jean Travis, closed the store in December 2011 citing financial difficulties. Here's an excerpt from Paul Post's Dec. 16, 2011 story:
CLIFTON PARK — John and Jean Travis opened the Jonesville Store five years ago with a dream, but the past few days have turned into a nightmare before Christmas.Read more about the closure here.
Faced with a perfect storm of financial difficulties, the couple plans to sell their popular business, leaving its 14 employees facing an uncertain future right before the holidays."Jean is still hoping for a Christmas miracle," John Travis said Thursday. "I don’t know. There were a lot of tears here yesterday."Wednesday was when the Travises notified workers that they’re negotiating to sell the quaint store, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has operated almost continuously since 1854.
Just 48 hours after closing, though, the Jonesville Store was back in business, this time under new management. Maria and Robert Decker of Clifton Park bought the building and revamped the menu. Read more about the reopening here.
Reporter Glenn Griffith has a call into the Deckers for more information about their recent decision to close. As soon as I've got more for you, I'll put it up here.
