(THESE ARE NOT MY PICTURES AND I CREDIT THOSE OF YOU THAT TOOK THESE)
I have a list that I have been meaning to post to the world, a rather categorized and orgainzed list of the vintage and last remainly locations of chains around the country, like last month, the Howard Johnson's in Lake Placid, NY closed for good. This is an example of what the list consists of, the last remaining location of something that still has a presence in modern retail society. I figure this is an interesting one, and quick to write about, the York Steakhouse in Columbus, Ohio.
|4220 West Broad Street Columbus, Ohio 43228|
York Steakhouse was once a national chain of eat in restaurants in the United States, and owned by General Mills, the cereal company, of all people. The chain was very popular in the 1970's and 1980's, but by the start of the 90's, most of the locations closed. The restaurants could be found mostly in shopping centers, and resembled the layout of a cafeteria.
There is a commercial for York from 1978, featured in the commercial break from Cleveland News WJKW (starts and 1:10)-
Once General Mills sold the chain, there were few York's that continued business for several years as independently owned locations, and as of today, there is only one locations that remains, on the west side of Columbus, Ohio, near Lincoln Village, off Interestate 270 and Broad Street. The restaurant in across the street from the struggling Westland Mall.
