Country Village Restaurant Closes Suddenly

13WHAM reports that:

"Greece NY -- If you wanted a good hearty breakfast and were in the Greece area, customers say Country Village was the place to go. But after more than 20 years in business, the restaurant abruptly locked its doors Tuesday.

Mark IV, which owns the County Village Plaza, says the restaurant's owners were struggling to pay their rent.

The company says it tried to work with the owners for more than a year but was forced to serve an eviction notice because they owed more than $40,000 in back rent.

Customers and even some employees were shocked when the doors were locked just after breakfast Tuesday.

Waitress Kelly Zona cried. She told us "We were like a family... You get close to the people that work here."

We tried unsuccessfully to call the owner of the restaurant. Mark IV says it hopes to get another restaurant to lease that popular location."
