Coventry, RI closed today, leaving the chain in the single digit store count. 


Title: Re: All 31 locations of Benny's closing
Post by: JJBers on November 18, 2017, 08:19:19 PM
And more stores are closed yesterday (11-16-2017), leaving the count down to 5: article (https://www.nbcboston.com/news/local/4-More-Bennys-Stores-Close-Their-Doors-in-Massachusetts-Rhode-Island-458241983.html)
This means Benny's only has one store in Massachusetts, and four in Rhode Island
Closed locations: The other Cranston, RI location, Fall River, MA (I almost went there), Plymouth, MA, and Dennisport, MA.
Benny's website hasn't even updated the closed locations yet too. Also for above, correction it was Coventry, not Cranston

It's over... Benny's is shutting down it's last store in Greenville, RI on Monday (Dec. 11). I guess this is the end of a era for us locals out here.  :-(

Well, as of 40 minutes ago, Benny's officially shut down for good, with their last location being located in Greenville, Rhode Island. (5pm, December 11, 2017)
I guess this ends this series on Benny's closings.
