GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- The Cannery Public Market announced Friday it plans to permanently close as a result of coronavirus.
The downtown Green Bay restaurant cites a decrease in patronage, as a result of COVID-19, coupled with the seasonal nature of the restaurant’s menu, led to a temporary closure at the end of March.
“When we made the decision to temporarily close in March, we never imagined it would become permanent,” said general manager Adrienne Winter.
According to a press release from the restaurant, transitional services are being offered to all staff. The restaurant will not reopen for food service. However, the market space will reopen for the month of June, providing guests an opportunity to use any outstanding gift cards and to say “good-bye”.
The Cannery’s event team is corresponding directly with customers who had reservations for the Hayloft and Farmer’s Table event spaces.
The restaurants news release states the Rail Yard Management Team is committed to identifying an operating partner that will offer a continuance of the restaurant founder John T. Pagel's legacy and vision within the restaurant suite.
