The Last Days of Valentino’s. What Will Be Built in Its Place?
UPDATE: I spoke with a team member at Valentino's and he said their last day in business will be Monday, May 11, 2015 or Tuesday, May 12, 2015, depending on how long the food lasts. This is your last chance to take your mom out for Mother's Day to the Val's buffet in Sioux Falls.
The building will eventually be bulldozed and a new corporate Verizon Wireless store will be built in its place.
If you're hungry for cinnamon dessert sticks and a slice of one of the best Canadian bacon pizzas in the city, you better plan a trip to Valentino's soon.
Valentino's on 41st Street, one of Sioux Falls' oldest pizza restaurants, is closing its doors. Nearly 25 years after opening, John Jones, the owner says it's time to move on.
According to our news gathering partner, KDLT News, the building has already been purchased. The business will be open through at least Mother's Day. There will be a public auction on May 15, 2015 to sell most of the restaurant equipment inside the building.
We'll miss you, Valentino's. We wish John and his family the best.
