The Waiting station, a fixture in Branford Center for years, has announced its closure. On Facebook, the owners posted the following news:
"For our family, Valentine's day will now be remembered as the day our beloved Waiting Station closed its doors. As we announce the bittersweet closing of our business that has been in our family for over 40 years. This was a difficult decision not only because it is a family-run shop that we grew up with, but also because our loyal patrons have become part of our extended family. We are grateful for the many years you proved your loyalty to us. Starting back to the little "grocery store/pizza shop" that began in Short Beach which over the decades transformed into hot spot for breakfast in center of town. As we begin new chapters in our lives we again Thank You for making the Wating Stating a landmark in Branford (in the words of my Dad).. "Thank you for your patronage"
