According to a Facebook post, the pandemic is what led to the restaurant’s closing, as owners say they were unable to recover.

They say in order to keep the business open, they would need to raise prices so high that the restaurant would not be able to compete.

Officials say Emge’s last day will be Wednesday, September 21.
