Patch Poll: What Do You Think About the Vernon Friendly's Being Spared?

Does it ease your ice cream anxiety?

Friendly's has officially filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Chapter 11 allows a company to continue operating while its finances are restructured.

The filing is: Case No. 11-13167, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Delaware.

The Friendly's at Vernon Circle is not on the list of more than 400 restaurants slated to close.

Tell us what you think by taking the Patch Poll.

I don't want to see businesses close, it just keeps reminding us that we are in bad times and things are just not getting any better in the economy. I would just like our town to work hard at beating the hard times and not be reminded when we drive down a road/street and see abandon/closed businesses! Just look at pictures of Flint Michigan and pray this does not happen here!

I'm still getting over the loss of the Friendly's in the Rockville section of town. It was smaller and cozier than the one on Route 83. I also miss Ducky's--with the outdoor soft serve dip-cones. Sigh....
