Harvest Diner in Cinnaminson will close its doors this Sunday after 19 years in business.
However, the diner is slated to reopen in the spring with a new menu, a new look and new owners.
Stella Savva, owner of Harvest Diner since 1994, told Cinnaminson Patch Thursday it was “the right time” to close.
“We are sad we are leaving now,” Savva said. “It’s our home away from home. It was something we needed to do.”
Savva did not elaborate more on the reason for closing.
However the owners of Sage Diner, the popular Route 73 diner in Mount Laurel, are set to take over.
“It’s going to be pretty spectacular,” said Sage manager Bobby Roustas.
The Roustas family has owned Sage for 21 years. Roustas said the deal is not final yet, but plans are to start renovations this Monday.
“We’re going to redo the inside, the outside, everything,” Roustas said.
The staff of Harvest will be offered their jobs back once renovation is complete and the diner reopens.
“We are trying to help everybody,” Roustas said.
