AJ Brewer, owner of Brewer’s Waffles (1311 Hull Street) closed for good this pas Sunday. Brewer’s Cafe just a few blocks away is remaining open.
“It created an environment of uncertainty,” AJ Brewer said. He tried to keep things going, but as months went on, everything seemed to change. Customers couldn’t keep up. “Were we open? Can I sit down? Do you have a shortened menu? Do you have shortened hours?”
The reduced foot traffic also became evident.
“We couldn’t really run the risk of staying open five to six hours with two people coming through the door,” he said.
