Beloved pizza shop bids farewell


After 50 years of serving up slices and other Italian specialties, the Aegean restaurant will be closing. A mainstay of the Sun-Vet Mall in Holbrook, the Aegean was often touted by community members as the last man standing in the mostly empty mall.

With locals and returning locals declaring the Aegean “must-have” pizza, they distinguished themselves on the South Shore of Suffolk County, an area deluged with pizza places.

According to a post on their social media, the Aegean’s owners decided to cease operations because “it [is] impossible for us to keep Aegean’s doors open and keep providing the same high-quality of serving that you became familiar with over the last five decades.”

The last day of service for the Aegean is Aug. 6.
