Stanâ€™s Restaurant on Main Street in Blackfoot has been a gathering place in Blackfoot since 1951.
So when the longtime, family owned eatery closed its doors rather abruptly last week, the word got out fast, leaving patrons and vendors asking â€śwhy?â€ť
Attempts were made by the Morning News to reach the longtime restaurant owner,Gregory Richardson, for comment on the closure of Stanâ€™s last week.
Family spokesman Tom Richardson (Gregoryâ€™s brother) offered to shed some
insight on the closure and the history of Stanâ€™s.
