Pizza Hut closes down
The Pizza Hut on Seventh Avenue in Two Harbors permanently closed its doors at 9 p.m. Monday evening leaving over a half-dozen local residents out of work. On Tuesday morning, company signs were taken down. Employees said they were told of the store closing just days before it was shut down. A number of other Pizza Huts in the area were reported closed, including in Superior, Wis., Hibbing and Grand Rapids. Calls to corporate media relations seeking comment were not returned by press time. Photo by Jim Erickson.
