The Green Tomato made an announcement today that they will be closing their Genoa location on January 21, 2012, but the Lake Drive store will remain open for business.

The announcement was made in a status update on their Facebook page...

Green Tomato Genoa loves our customers! Seriously, we do! That’s why it’s so hard to tell you that we’ve made a thorough and thoughtful decision to pool our Green Tomato resources into the one location on Lake Drive as of Monday, January 21. The economy is tough and small rural diners have a hard time even in the best of circumstances. We have enjoyed and very much appreciate your loyalty and support here in the Genoa community. We’ve had fun and made lots of friends. Our last day of business in the Genoa location will be Sunday, January 20, when we will be open for lunch from 11am-2pm. We will be open as usual every day this week with great lunch and supper specials. We look forward to serving you the same delicious food at the same great prices at our location at 2902 S. Lake Drive, where we open for breakfast at 7am everyday except Sunday. As always, all Green Tomato gift certificates and coupons can be redeemed there.

It's sad to see them close, and the comments on their update shows that the Genoa Community will miss them.
