Friendly’s closes 6 restaurants, including Springfield and another Massachusetts location

Friendly’s shut down a total of six restaurants in four states this weekend, a list that includes the Sumner Avenue location here in Springfield. The others are in Seekonk, Massachusetts; Bennington, Vermont; Rutland, Vermont; Dover, New Hampshire, and in East Greenbush, New York. East Greenbush is a suburb of Albany. Friendly’s released the list Tuesday afternoon saying that it was eliminating under performing stores. “Over the past few years, we have identified and minimized the number of locations that no longer deliver the customer experience that we are working to create,” Friendly’s said in a news release. “As we move forward, our goal is to open locations with improved service and value for our customers.”
