Because of certain circumstances, and with deep regret, we had to close Sabby’s door. It was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make, and our hearts are broken over this.
Sabby’s has been an institution in Rutland for so many years, and we are proud and honored to say that we owned it, if only for a short while. We genuinely wanted to carry on the tradition that Sabby’s has always been known for, but because of certain situations, it wasn’t meant to be for us, and we are sick over this.
We want to thank our staff for all their hard work. They weren’t our employees; they were and always will be our family, and I hope they will always realize just how much they all mean to us. Especially Larry!
And thank you to each and every customer who came through our door. We appreciate it more than you know, especially to those who came to be such good friends to us.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you all so much.
