On June 10, 2010, it was announced that Joan & Ed’s Deli would be closing its doors on June 20, 2010.
As sad as this was; the support and outreach of the community was overwhelming! During the weeks, the number of people who made an effort to come and say goodbye was mind-boggling and emotional. It was a wonderful tribute to Joan & Ed, the restaurant and the community.
People wanted a piece of Joan & Ed’s to take home with them…literally! Every single picture off the wall was purchased! Many even asked them to sign them for keepsakes. Mugs, cups, t-shirts (even used ones) were also bought.
We were lucky to have some wonderful press. Two pieces from WBZ Channel 4 and NECN are below, plus copies of several articles online or from the papers.
Thank you to all the families, staff and community for making Joan & Ed’s such a wonderful place over the years.
