The ad is particularly well-written, with some genuinely heartfelt copy.
The West Erie Avenue restaurant held its Grand Opening on Wednesday, June 29, 1960.
It's just too bad that the various national and regional restaurant businesses along that stretch of the highway – McDonald's, Howard Johnson's, Manners, etc. – just couldn't make it. The siphoning off of east-west traffic by the new Route 2 probably doomed them.
If they had succeeded, more businesses might have been attracted to that side of town and Lorain would have a good strip of tax-paying businesses on its outskirts to rival Vermilion.
However, it's nice that, along with a couple of motels, a few mom-and-pop restaurants still remain down there (although the latest to occupy the former McDonald's location unfortunately didn't last very long).
