WICHITA — Wednesday is the second anniversary of Everybody's Family Restaurant opening at Hillside and Harry, and owner Ernie Fincher says business has "been awesome."

March 30 is its last day in business, though. The restaurant, which is on the southwest corner of the intersection, is closing to make way for a new CVS store.

"It's a sad deal," says Fincher, who also owns Fat Ernie's Family Dining on South Hydraulic. "We really are going to miss it."

Even though he's known this was coming for a year, Fincher says he still hasn't found a new location.

"We are looking, but I just want to make sure I make the right decision."

There's a possibility the restaurant won't reopen until the economy improves. Fincher isn't sure yet.

"We're going to miss a lot of customers," he says. "Hopefully some of them will go back over to Fat Ernie's."
