***ORIGINAL STORY (Nov. 17, 2018)***
Fans of a greasy American food had better not drag their feet.
The Root Beer Stande, 1727 Woodman Drive, is shutting down for the season, owner Emily Collins said.
The business famous for its burgers, hot dogs and floats will shut down after service noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.
“Unless I run out of food,” Collins said. “We will open back up Feb. 1.”

The car-hop style restaurant has been a staple in the area since it first opened in 1961.
Then 25 years old, Collins bought the business from Alex Fabrick in 2008.
She had very little experience in the food industry at the time, but is rocking the ropes now.
