The Salem Diner Closes Its Doors Today

A couple of months ago, it was learned that a North Shore diner that also happens to be an historic landmark was looking at an uncertain future. Now it has been confirmed that the place is shutting down for good today--though there is still hope that it could reopen elsewhere.

As indicated in an earlier article, The Salem Diner on Loring Avenue closes today after nearly 80 years in operation according to a CBS Boston post, as Salem State University--which purchased the eatery in 2013--is consolidating its on-campus food options. CBS mentions that the diner structure itself is up for sale and the hope is that a new owner might purchase it and move it to another space, but for now, today is the last day for the place.

The Salem Diner, which first opened in 1941, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
