Following a tenure of more than three decades, Pizza “Ria’s” Too has closed.

According to several Facebook posts made by the business, the eatery shuttered on Oct. 31, as owners Bill and Ria Fox have retired.

“It is after Midnight so it is officially October 31st, 2022 and I am very proud of Bill & myself (and with our daughters support) to make this post,” Ria Fox wrote in a message to customers.
