MetiNews.Com - The reopened restaurant is at Bristol Harbourside
Breaking News ! Pizza Express has reopened its restaurant in the Bristol Harbourside - a week after it announced plans to close three restaurants in the Bristol area. The restaurant chain said earlier this month that it would push forward with plans to close 73 restaurants and cut around 1,100 jobs after restructuring plans were approved by creditors. It has become the latest dining chain to shut sites after revenues dived following the enforced closure of its restaurants in March. As part of the plans, Pizza Express plans to close three restaurants in the Bristol area: the ones in Berkeley Square and in Regent Street, as well as the restaurant in Weston-super-Mare. However, the chain has now announced the Bristol Harbourside pizzeria has reopened.
