Today’s Bulletin reported on the closure of downtown’s Pita Pit restaurant; however unlike many closures of late, this one isn’t necessarily due to poor business. Rather, it seems there is a dispute between the business and the landlord.
According to the notice, the landlord, Beck Bakery Building LLC, terminated the lease of Pita Pit of Central Oregon LLC. Anyone who enters the business at 806 N.W. Brooks Alley without the landlord’s consent is trespassing, according to the June 16 notice. The landlord also has a lien on the contents, it says, and may keep the contents until the “rent and advances is paid.”
Obviously there is no word yet on when (and if) Pita Pit will re-open.
