Subway sandwich shop in Ark City will close later this month so the current building can be demolished and a new one built, workers there told NewsCow this week.
The last day of business will be Dec. 16 and demolition is expected to happen the following day. Subway is located at 1804 N. Summit St.
If good weather holds and construction progresses smoothly, the new building could be ready to open by early Spring 2013. Workers will be laid off while the project is undertaken but can apply for unemployment benefits, employees said.
“I will miss my regular customers more than anything,” Liz King, a three-year employee of the Ark City Subway, said.
Employees will have the option to return once the building process is completed.
Plans for the new Subway include a drive through and a larger dining room area.
