CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A national chain restaurant, Pies & Pints, is now closed at The Banks in downtown Cincinnati due to economic impacts from coronavirus-related restrictions.

To everyone involved in the journey at this location - thank you so much for supporting us and dining with us. Our other Cincinnati locations in Kenwood and Liberty Town Center will remain open for you to #getsome of your favorite pies. Here’s to the next chapter of P&P and all the exciting things ahead!”

Pies & Pints’ president and chief executive officer, Rob Lindeman, provided a statement to FOX19 NOW when we contacted him to see why they were closing their location in downtown Cincinnati.

“Our Banks location opened over four years ago and depended heavily on the proximity to PBS, GAB, arenas, and large offices. Pies & Pints was well received and we had our best year in 2019 increasing sales by almost 10%. We were looking forward to another great year in 2020 with positive sales until Covid hit. Covid virtually shut down all of our sources of traffic including offices and events. We made the difficult decision to close after consulting with our landlords. All associates and our management team have been offered similar positions at our Kenwood and Liberty locations. We are heartbroken that Covid forced the closing of our Banks location, but with no end in sight to the pandemic, we felt this was the best decision. All gift cards will be honored at any Pies & Pints location.”
