Main Street took another blow this weekend as Makenzie’s Country Kitchen closed their doors and ceased operation. The family owned restaurant that specialized in southern home cooking at affordable prices, opened in the spring of 2010. Patrons who attempted to visit the establishment were greeted by locked doors and a handwritten sign in the window that simply said, “Thank you to our loyal customers but we regret to inform you that we are closing permanently.”
The closure was also announced on their Facebook page and elaborated on the decision saying:
“Business has been really slow for months now and we held out as long as we could. This past month or so was the last straw [..] We poured our heart & soul into that place. We are so sad to have to let it go.”
The space at 24 W. Main Street has seen several restaurants including Mario’s which moved to a new location and the Main Street Bistro which went out of business.
This closure comes on the heels of the announcement that the Main Street anchor Berryville Pharmacy will close in March.
