The Discovery Bay Straw Hat Pizza location closed it’s doors Saturday, December 8th.
The restaurant has been a Discovery Bay establishment for more than 20 years. It was first located on Discovery Bay Boulevard before moving next to Safeway in 2003.
New owners came along in 2007 and gave a great deal to the community, but despite their outreach efforts, the business could not survive the high rents in the Sandy Cove Shopping Center.
It is a sad day to see any small business close it’s doors, as it is local business that supports local events, clubs, charities, and schools.
Side note: Straw Hat Pizza Wagon is not affiliated with the storefront closure.
