MANKATO — A Sbarro in the River Hills Mall Food Court is one of 155 of the pizza and pasta chain's stores that are being closed nationwide.
Sbarro officials announced the closings Wednesday, saying most of the stores that would be closing are in malls because that's where traffic is declining, the Associated Press reported. The business owns 400 stores nationwide and 800 stores worldwide.
The closings will affect about 1,400 workers. The number of employees losing jobs at each store wasn't announced. The River Hills Mall Sbarro closed Wednesday and employees were told to pick up their last pay checks Thursday.
