Fresh Catch Closes in Attleboro
The owner says he is closing because the rent and taxes are too high. He would not recommend any businesses come to Attleboro.
A moving van was in front of Fresh Catch on Union Street in Attleboro Thursday morning as owner Bill Sarro prepared to close the restaurant after five years. Sarro told Attleboro Patch that he did not renew his lease on the property.
"In these economic times, the tough times we're in, it's not feasible with the rent and the taxes in this city to make it work," Sarro said.
He added, "I wouldn't recommend any business come to this city."
Sarro declined to get into specifics about rent figures.
He said he would be looking for a new restaurant location outside Attleboro, but for now he plans to concentrate his efforts on Fresh Catch's other existing locations, which include Mansfield and North Attleborough.
