Eateries close doors, one for good, the other for remodeling

 Two Brookings-Harbor eateries are closing their doors – one permanently and the other for a few months.

Friday will be the last day of business for The Hunger Stop, 925 Chetco Ave.

Meanwhile, The Apple Peddler at 97953 Shopping Center Ave. in Harbor is closed until spring.

 

 Hunger Stop owner Keffe Dillon says it’s time to stop working 60 to 70 hours a week and start enjoying more leisure time.

“I can just never get away,” he said.

Dillon and his wife, Theresa, have children at the University of Oregon and Oregon State University, and Dillon wants more time to travel to see them, he said. The couple’s youngest son is a senior at Brookings-Harbor High School and will be away at college next year, too, furthering the desire for more time off.

“It’s a quality of life decision,” Dillon said.

He added that Chetco Federal Credit Union made him a good job offer. Theresa Dillon also works for CFCU.

They ran The Hunger Stop together for five years until Keffe took over by himself for the past year. He has tried to sell the business, but hasn’t found a buyer, he said.

The restaurant employs six part-time employees, two of whom have found new jobs. Dillon said local employers who need good workers should consider the other four, saying, “I’ve got some awesome girls.”

He emphasized his appreciation for support the community has given the restaurant over the years.

“I really would like to thank our faithful customers, including the students. They’ve all been great.”

Al Rosiechelli, who owns the building that houses The Hunger Stop and his own business Al’s Electronics/ Radio Shack, said he hopes another restaurateur will lease the space.

“It’s all set up and ready to roll,” he said, adding that the restaurant equipment belongs to him and will stay in place. 

The Apple Peddler is closed for repair and remodeling, but will open again during the first couple of weeks in March, said Casey Toth, assistant manager of the Crescent City Apple Peddler store.

He said the remodeling won’t add square footage to the restaurant, although customers will notice cleaner carpets, booths and general appearance.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Greeks deeply divided heading into crucial vote
    Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets on Friday in rival rallies that laid bare the deep divide heading into a referendum that may decide the country?s future in Europe?s single currency. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, elected in January on a promise to end years of austerity, urged people packing Syntagma square in central Athens to spurn the tough terms of an aid deal offered by international creditors to keep the country afloat. Tsipras says they are bluffing, fearing the fallout for Europe and the global economy.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
