VINELAND – It’s last call Saturday for the South Vineland Tavern, the latest small business casualty of the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s been a tough year for bar owner John Forosisky.
His longtime tavern manager, Larry Hurst of Millville, died in October after an extended illness.
Forosisky pressed on, but five months later COVID-19 hit. State mandates shut down his local landmark standing on the corner of Main Road and Grant Avenue.
After months of losing money, Forosisky said the business can no longer survive limited to take-out meals and 25-percent capacity when its bills remain constant.
It’s reached the point of working too hard for too little, he said.
