According to The Boston Guardian, another long-time South End business will close its doors. While vacationing in Brazil I saw this shared on Facebook by a friend and after a bit of digging I found The Guardian’s post on Twitter.
Emilio’s owner did not give a date for when they would close but mentioned a back injury, which prevents him from continuing to work is the cause for closing. Emilio’s has been a neighborhood fixture since it first opened in 1979 and when it closes it will join the Five Seventy Market located two blocks down the street, which closed earlier this year after the owner unexpectedly passed away. It is sad to see successful small businesses close under such circumstances.
