Community wonders why longtime Main Street business closed its doors.
During lunchtime at Tonino’s on Thursday, there was no smell of freshly baked pizza or pasta, no chatter of locals on their lunch breaks. A sign taped inside the entrance in the back of the building simply read “Sorry Closed.” The longtime Main Street restaurant had quietly closed its doors.
