After nearly 19 years in business, John Glass is shutting down the Waverly Tavern on Feb. 19.
Glass confirmed the rumors swirling around town to be true earlier this week, when he told The Herald that the economy took its toll on the Waverly.
For the past two years, revenue has been on the decline all while expenses continued to rise.
"For the last two years, there has been a major drop in business," Glass explained. "Unfortunately, all the other costs were spiraling up."
According to Glass, it "didn't make economic sense" to remain in business. The lease Glass has with Stop & Shop expires at the beginning of March, something he will not be renewing. Glass doesn't have to be out of the Waverly Tavern until Feb. 28, but he decided to close earlier so he can clean up and collect this personal things.
