Sbarro eatery at Spotsylvania Towne Centre now closed

The Sbarro eatery inside the Spotsylvania Towne Centre has closed.

Wednesday was the last day for the Italian restaurant chain’s location at the local mall’s food court. Staffers were on site Thursday closing down the location, which was the only Sbarro in the Fredericksburg area.

The Spotsylvania location was one of 155 company-owned stores that Sbarro decided to close in North America in an attempt to improve the company’s profitability.

The Melville, N.Y.-based chain emerged from bankruptcy in 2011.
