Quick update, Groton, CT closed today, and Fairhaven, MA closes tomorrow. http://wpri.com/2017/10/19/bennys-locations-dwindle-as-end-of-the-year-draws-near/
Luckily for Groton, I caught possibly the last photo of the store open:

And more stores are closed yesterday (11-16-2017), leaving the count down to 5: article
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.  Sad

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.
