Boston Pizza is reopening in New Glasgow.
According to a press release from the restaurant chain’s PR firm, the company’s New Glasgow location will be re-opening on Aug. 19.
The restaurant, which is located in Highland Square Mall, closed suddenly after the previous owners, Jan and Troy Relf, closed suddenly in November 2018, leaving 40 employees without work.
The employees say they were informed of the closure via a message on the company’s scheduling app.
At the time, Boston Pizza’s senior VP of marketing and communications, Peter Blackwell, told The News the company expected it would be reopening, “under new ownership” and that many of the staff impacted by the sudden closure would be hired back.
“Boston Pizza plans to again provide both employment opportunities and dining options for the community of New Glasgow once we work through this unfortunate and unplanned temporary closure,” said Blackwell.
In a separate release, Boston Pizza named the new owner of the New Glasgow restaurant as being Terry Whynot, who also owns and operates four other locations in Nova Scotia.
“As the new owner, I’m committed to building long-lasting relationships with residents, businesses, team members, charities and local sports teams in order to make Boston Pizza New Glasgow a local gathering place for the whole community,” said Whynot in the release.
