We met a friend for drinks at Pargo’s last night and the bartender told us that they are closing down on July 2nd and the building will be torn down so that retail shops can be built in that spot. There’s also a sign out front that says if you have any coupons, they should be redeemed by the end of this month.
I hope they have someone who will put all that wood inside Pargo’s to good use.
From an article in todays’ (Wednesday) FNP:
Fans of Pargo’s Restaurant on Spectrum Drive will soon have to dine elsewhere.
The restaurant, near the FSK Mall, is closing July 3 and will be demolished.
Dick Buskell, a spokesman for Chain Bridge Properties, which owns the 2.2-acre site, said it will be transformed to retail use.
“It’s still in the preliminary engineering stage,” he said Tuesday, “but the target is to make it an upscale apparel and jewelry store center.”
Buskell said there would be a 13,000-square-foot retail building and another 6,000-square-foot pad site on the property.
