Doors closed at Boston Pizza in North Delta

Restaurant has been open at Scott Road and 64th Avenue for close to two decades

The Boston Pizza restaurant at 64th Avenue and Scott Road closed its doors on Feb. 12.

NORTH DELTA — Another long-established restaurant on Scott Road has shut its doors.

The Boston Pizza at 64th Avenue was permanently closed on Feb. 12, according to officials with the restaurant chain, and the space remains dark.

The restaurant, operated by franchisees, was located in Sunshine Village Shopping Centre for close to two decades.

“It wasn’t a profitable store, so they just shut it down,” said another local restaurant operator who requested anonymity.

“It’s always struggled and never made much money.”

Jordan Holm, head of corporate communications for Boston Pizza, said the company doesn’t publicly comment about reasons for a restaurant’s closure.

“We do, from time to time, have to close a location permanently, for various reasons. Because this one involves a private company, a franchisee of that location, we don’t get into the details of why,” Holm told the Now.

He added: “It did not close because of health record or any sort of violations, that’s not the case. You could look at records with Fraser Health Authority, there’s no indication of issues there.”

According to a post on Collierscanada.com, Sunshine Village is “an attractively designed business plaza comprising approximately 43,456 square feet of rentable area.” Tenants there include New Balance Athletic Footwear, 7-Eleven, Edward Jones Financial, Sunshine Village Pediatric Dental Group, Applewood Country Gifts and Bell Mobility.

Last week, the Now reported the Earls Kitchen + Bar at Strawberry Hill will close its doors on March 27, upon the end of its lease there, as operators of the chain “look for a new location in the area that meets our new design and development goals.”
