Fran’s Place in Lynn to close

frans-place-bostonNECN reported that Fran’s Place, in Lynn, MA will close one week from today on Monday, September 26. The business has been in owner Jay Collins’ family since the 1920s, when it opened as a tavern at another location before moving to the current location as Lighthouse Cafe in the 1940s and ultimately Fran’s Place in the ’70s.

The sale of the property will likely be completed by the end of the month.  A goodbye party is scheduled for this Saturday. For more information check out their event page on facebook.
