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.

  • Jobs report may test market's complacency
    The U.S. stock market has been quiet this week - too quiet. Wall Street has traded in a tight range of late, with both volatility and trading volumes drying up as the earnings season winds down and Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen's recent Congressional testimony delivered no surprises. About 238,000 jobs are expected to have been added in February, according to the non-farm payroll report that will be released on Friday, down from the 257,000 added in January. "Economic data will be the biggest driver of market moves over the next month, and the key one is the jobs report," said Jim McDonald, chief investment strategist at Chicago-based Northern Trust Asset Management.
  • U.S. economy slowed in fourth quarter, but growth outlook still favorable
    U.S. economic growth braked more sharply than initially thought in the fourth quarter amid a moderate increase in business inventories and a wider trade deficit, but strong domestic demand brightened the outlook. Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.2 percent annual pace, revised down from the 2.6 percent pace estimated last month, the Commerce Department said on Friday. The economy grew at a 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Businesses accumulated $88.4 billion worth of inventory in the fourth quarter, far less than the $113.1 billion the government had estimated last month.
  • Dudley, top U.S. economists urge later Fed rate hike
    Raising interest rates too late is safer than acting too early, an influential Federal Reserve official said on Friday, endorsing a high-profile research paper that argues the U.S. economy, given time, can rebound to the strong growth rate to which Americans are accustomed. The paper by four top U.S. economists, presented on Friday to a roomful of powerful central bankers in New York, argues the Fed would be wise to keep rates at rock bottom for longer than planned and then tighten monetary policy more aggressively. New York Fed President William Dudley, who offered a critique of the paper, cited currently low inflation and warned against being too anxious to tighten monetary policy. The U.S. central bank is in the global spotlight as it weighs when to lift rates after more than six years near zero, and how quickly to tighten policy thereafter.
