At least, for now.
A family-owned business in the Albertville community for two years, D’s Family Pizza recently announced their closing for the second time in two years to customers on their Facebook page, writing (in part) on Tuesday, Dec. 10:
"As many of you may have heard by now, we have closed our restaurant. Yes a second time. We really want to say thank you to all of the best customers ever-who have become our friends and family. It has truly been our pleasure to not only feed you but get to know you and your family. The food was only a reason to get to know each other. You are family now and that never ends. Please continue to support small business – small business is becoming so much smaller. We are the ones who care who our customers are. We know you are the reason we do what we do because we love it."The letter continued:
"And we want to send out a great big thanks to our staff. They are crazy good and believe the same as we do. They are the best!!!
The very best to all of you- We hope this is only a “see you soon”.
Thank you for having us in your lives- With much love-
And all the incredible staff at D’s Family Pizza"
The business was no stranger to the northwest metro area. Before opening in Albertville, the owners operated a restaurant in Brooklyn Park for 25 years. The owners declined to comment about the May 29 and current closure beyond their Facebook letter.
There is an exchanged on its Facebook site regarding use of additional space in the business' former location - a strip mall off Labeaux Avenue near that also houses Patti J's and Snap Fitness. D's Family Pizza was using an additional space in the mall for its popular lunch buffet, but that came to a halt on Dec. 1.
