The restaurant’s last day of business will be Saturday, Jan. 30, the post said. “Stop by and see us before we go!” the owners said.
The announcement prompted an outpouring of supportive but grieving comments from customers.
“Your families hospitality and food will surely be missed,” one customer wrote. Another added, “Great food and people, hate to hear this. Terrible loss for Springboro community!”
In May 2020, Farmers & Merchants Bank announced it had purchased the property housing the deli to build a new bank that would include space to keep the deli operational.
At that time, Steve Swank, who has owned the deli since 1995, said he was ready to retire from food service and pursue other interests, although family members had expressed an interest in keeping the business open within the newly renovated space with the bank.
Main Street Deli serves soups, salads, subs and sandwiches, along with breakfast and baked goods.
