VINTON, Va. (WDBJ) - A Vinton brick-oven pizzeria is closed as of Saturday.

WDBJ7 received numerous reports and paid a visit to the former site of Joe Goodpies in Vinton, only to be met with a sign on the door announcing Saturday as its last day of business.

Per the announcement, the restaurant was supposed to be open through 9 p.m., but appeared to have already closed for the day as of 2 in the afternoon.

Residents were surprised of its closing as they visited the restaurant to eat.

”And I was greatly disappointed and really quite surprised. We were all thrilled, the local residents here of Vinton, when they opened this restaurant and it’s been very nice to the community,” said Vinton resident Maria Roman. “And I’ve enjoyed eating here and I’ve enjoyed everything that I eat here. I hate it for the employees and I hate it for the community.”

WDBJ7 is working to learn more about the business closing.
