Corry restaurant Augie’s Pizza announced on Facebook that they would be officially closing on Saturday, December 3. Several Corry Facebook users and civilians have expressed their dismay and sorrow over the ordeal.


Mr. Simmonsen, high school science teacher and the 2007 Augie’s Pizza eating champion, said, “I’m very dismayed by this.”

For over 45 years, this pizza place has been dedicated to serving delicious foods and quality customer service in a family friendly atmosphere.

“Augie’s has been a big part of my appetite since I was young, I’m really sad to see them go out of business,” senior Lakota Donaldson said. “They’re such a family friendly restaurant.”

“Best strombolis ever, it’s a shame,” Mr. Chludzinski said.

Mr. Goodwill, head football coach, said, “It’s sad to see such a fixture in our community say goodbye.”
