I'm hoping that the Friendly's corp dosen't get crazy dollar signs in their eyes on what the value of their property is worth, The amount of interest in that property is overwhelming and if everything goes well, it could be a new home to a much needed restaurant. The activity and interest in Glenville has never been better.

What Happened to Friendlys

It was unfortunate that Friendlys decided to close.... No one saw that coming, but we are actively looking for a family style restaurant in Glenville to fill that void.
