From the article:
On the business' official Facebook page, a posting was left Saturday announcing the news to customers.
It said, in part, "Bad news all Omelettarians! Vons [has] served us our 30-day notice to vacate ... We don't have a new location yet, so get everyone you know to join our page so they can be updated as things progress."
The parlor has about 25 employees, and each will be laid off, Moss said.
Fellow waitress Kara English grew up going to the parlor.
"It's been here forever," she said. "I've been coming here since I was a kid. It's going to be missed. People around here that grew up here know about the parlor."
In 2003, Vons tried to pull the same thing but local residents rallied and saved the restaurant. Haven't heard any talk of that happening this time, but that might change once more people hear that they'll be apple-butter-less within a month. We didn't name the joint the best spot for Sunday brunch in 2009 for nothing.
