After more than two decades of serving town residents, Lovettsville Pizza & Subs has closed for good.
The pizza parlor permanently shut its doors at midnight Saturday, Sept. 29, following a full day of Oktoberfest activities across town. According to the restaurant’s website, Owner Chuck Blough “can no longer continue to keep the business open.”
“It has been an extreme honor to serve the community of Lovettsville and its residents,” he wrote. “Without you, I would have never been able to sustain the business for the time that I did.”
Blough said that he wants to let his thoughts settle a bit before talking about the closure. Sam Saa, the founder of Metropolitan Restaurant Brokers and the leasing agent for the property, said that Blough’s lease was not up.
Lovettsville Pizza was the town’s sole pizza parlor for 13 years, from its opening in January 1995 until Andy’s Pizza & Subs opened in 2008. In 2017, Rasco New York Pizza opened in Lovettsville Square and became the town’s third pizza option.
Saa said that there are now several restaurants interested in moving into the location, one of which is local.
