Penrose Fish and Chips to close next month

It's a sad day for local lovers of fish and chips. One of Toronto's finest (and oldest) chipperies is closing at the end of October after 65 years in business at its location on Mount Pleasant. For those unfamiliar, Penrose Fish and Chips is a classic throwback fish and chips spot where the fried goodness is still served in the traditional newspaper and line-ups are the norm on Good Fridays.

According to the South Bayview Bulldog, the reason for the closure is simply that the owners are retiring. Here's hoping that someone has the good sense to step in and continue running the business.
