After two years of business, Porky’s closed its doors on July 8. The convenience store and gas station, located on Perryville Road just outside Springfield, is the latest victim of a sluggish economy.
“We just opened at a bad time,” said Porky’s co-owner Regina Montgomery. “It’s the economy. We didn’t have enough volume to keep the store going. Everybody that came out there, they loved it. We went for the quality of our food and we gave it our best shot. We’ll miss it. We appreciate everybody’s support.”
