Newington Roy Rogers closed

Recommended Posts

The Roy Rogers on the Berlin Turnpike closed down a couple of weeks ago, but there is already work being done on the building. Does anyone know what's going in there? It better not be another bank.

There's a new Arby's already going in 5 minutes away in Berlin, no need for another that close when Roy's is so good...

Besides the restaurant in Newington, I only know of a restaurant near Buckland in Manchester. Is the Manchester location the last Roy Rogers restaurant in Connecticut?

Yes.

Pretty soon the only place to find Roy Rogers will be turnpike rest areas. I swear, that's the only places I ever seen them, besides the one in Manchester. Not bad food, though the last time I was at one (the Newark Del. service area on I-95 (go figure, rest area)), I plunked down like $11.

My assumption is, other chains just move in and take the property when there's nowhere else to go. Or Roy Rogers can't be doing that good.

I'd like to introduce myself to the boards.

I write for my own website, The Caldor Rainbow; a retail-centric site mostly Connecticut-based.

I wrote up a pictoral report on the closure of Roy Rogers a few weeks ago. Check it out.

Never been to Arby's.At least it won't be another McD, BK or DD,I'm sick of the same logos and trademark facades, and the idea of something other than burgers and coffee is welcome.Not that I'm a junkfood junky,Hartford area has some very good dining establishments which I prefer when I'm not in a hurry.

I can't think of any Arby's around here anyway, so at least it's something new for the area. There used to be one in the Richardson Food Court Downtown back in the day.
